Description

Family Asphodelaceae
Originating from South Africa

A vigorous, rambling, evergreen, succulent perennial forming a large clump of rosettes of spiny silver/grey, pointed leaves. It produces poker-like racemes of yellow flowers in summer and a mature plant can be a dazzling sight with scores of flowers. Bees find the flowers very attractive too. Grown in gritty, well-drained compost, Aloe striatula is a pretty tough succulent and has survived harsh winters here at the nursery. In winter 2009/10 the growth was cut back to ground level but new growth re-emerged in late spring and re-growth was rapid.
Aloe striatula needs very sharply drained soil or compost if grown in a pot and full sun. If it’s not knocked back by frost it will need regular pruning to maintain a compact shape. A piece of horticultural fleece will protect growth from frost in all but the severest winters.
