I bought this aloe crowded in a pot and neglected it for a while outside. It survived full sun, soaking rains, and the humidity here. I've been rewarded with almost continuous blooms.

This is a nice sturdy little aloe for the garden that is fairly easy to grow and requires little care. THe leaves are rought to the touch and finely speckled, but there are no sharp edges. Plant looks very similar to Aloe belatulla and flower shape is similar, too, though A belatulla has pale pink flowers (and is a much more prolific flowerer). Very few aloes have white flowers. Nice for pots as well as careful xerophyte landscaping (can get lost in busy landscape). This is a Madagascan native.
