An unusual “Tree Aloe” with beautiful blue-green foliage and bi-color blooms. Forms a succulent rosette about 2’ high and wide of slightly arching, softly toothed evergreen leaves. Over time a trunk forms, sometimes upright, but more often creeping along the ground with the rosette perched on its tip.Multiple erect flower spikes appear in Winter tipped by a conical cluster of hummer-attracting flowers that emerge dark red-orange, then fade to yellow for a two-toned effect. Makes a showy addition to a low-water garden – it’sextremely drought tolerant needing no additional water along the coast.Deer resistant. Provide excellent drainage for best health.
