Aloe striatula

Plant type: Shrub

This is a wonderful succulent plant from the mountains of South Africa and Lesotho. The fleshy leaves are present all year from striped stems that give the plant it's name (striatula). The yellow/orange flowers look like glossy Red Hot Poker flowers and cover the plant for many weeks in late spring and summer. It is one or the hardiest of all succulents and grows outdoors in full sun and well drained gritty soil, a bad winter might kill off the top shoots but is usually re-grows from ground level. Alternatively it makes a great conservatory plant that can stand out in summer and survive a lot of neglect!
