Aloe ‘Johnson’s Hybrid’
at Digging Dog

Aloe  Johnson’s Hybrid

March – October.

Aloe

A rosette of fleshy leaves and eye-catching terminal panicles roosting on long scapes hallmark this diverse genus of undemanding drought tolerant succulents. Asking only for sharply drained soil and protection from too much winter cold, Aloes make topnotch container subjects and highly ornamental additions to any garden, especially when associated with Crocosmias, Cistus or Melianthus ‘Antonow’s Blue’.

Aloe ‘Johnson’s Hybrid’ full sun  partial shade

Bright orange, pendulous tubes, each yellow on the inside and fringed in green, compose densely arranged, flashy-looking racemes perched on erect, one foot tall stems nearly all year long. With tiny white teeth and irregular light speckles, the narrow, bright green tapered leaves arch up and out, sculpting a dense, matlike ground cover. This diminutive South African Aloe can withstand cool winter temperatures and musters alluring contrast when sited amid Euphorbia ‘Blue Haze’ in the rockery.

Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0" & spreading; hardy to zone 8.
