Aloe claviflora

One or two flowers may appear at a time which is from August and September. The buds and young flowers are bright red but turn a yellow and whitish color as they age with time. This gives a very attractive bicolored appearance to the racemes.
The plant in itself is very tough and can survive often for several seasons without water, at which point the leaves turn a whitish color to help reflect the sun away from the plant. The leaves also close inwardly to form tough round balls that effectively protect the young leaves from heat stress.
Aloe claviflora grows relatively easily in cultivation if not overwatered and is grown in full sun. It can easily be transplanted and grows well in containers.
Artificially, a smallish rock garden that provides some shelter for A. claviflora, provides the best growing conditions but only in low rainfall areas.
