Aloe erinacea

(This plant comes in a 3.5" pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Also known as Goree this rare and gorgeous species of succulent plant in the genus aloe only recently discovered in the mid 1980's in Namibia, it seems strange that such an impressive plant could have remained unknown for so long. Its leaves are pale grayish-green, blue-grey or brownish green (in full sun), curved inwards, which gives the plant its rounded shape. About 8-16 long x 3-4 cm wide, and armed with sharp white or black spines, arranged singularly along the keel and margins. They are not tender, but firm and can scrape you. Spines are up to10 mm long, and are glossy white in the younger leaves. The thorns at the leaf bases may be shorter and whitish.

Recommended temperature zone: USDA: 8 to 11
Frost tolerance: fairly cold tolerant, for an aloe. It does well planted in the ground, but it is rarely grown outdoors
Sun exposure: Full Sun
Origin: Nimibia
Growth habits: Grows in very arid areas in rocky and sandy soils on the northern hills and mountains at 900 - 1350 m. in altitude. Winter-growing species
Watering needs: Drought-tolerant; suitable for xeriscaping Careful watering
