Aloe africana is a beautiful South Afircan native with wonderfully blue-green leaves which are adorned with sharp, deep red ‘teeth’ along the margins. In the wild, Aloe africana can reach heights of up to 6ft or more, however here in the UK this is an ideal specimen for container growing. Aloe africana most commonly produces a solitary stem with leaves forming a bold rosette. During the spring, plants may produce spectacular exotic looking flowers, the buds are deep orange with flowers opening to zingy yellow. Said to be hardy down to minus 4 degrees C in the UK, we would recommend giving this beauty some winter shelter and keeping it frost free. Plant in free draining compost and water sparingly. During spring to summer, occasional feeding with Cactus and Succulent Focus is recommended.
