Aloe wickensii
Aloe wickensii

Super cool flower alert! Aloe wickensii wields amazing bi-color (orangey red & yellow) blooms on branching racemes in Winter. Preferring the single life, it doesn’t produce offsets, sticking with a singular rosette comprised of slender, chalky blue-green, smooth leaves with short, pokey, mahogany spines on the margins. Native to Summer rainfall regions of South Africa, be sure to give it excellent drainage to deal with our wet Winters. Growing to 2-3’ high & wide.
