Description:

A tough little heat-loving hydrid aloe for small spaces. Narrow upright blue-gray leaves contrast nicely with spikes of orange flowers. A favorite of hummingbirds, this minimal-care succulent thrives in poor soil and is perfect for rock gardens, water-wise borders or containers. Excellent mass planting. Foliage tips may have a reddish tinge in extreme temperatures. Evergreen.
