Aloe zebrina

22nd November 2014

A beautiful compact species with dark leaves heavily speckled with white spots. I was given a young division last year and planted it in light shade in an attempt to protect it from severe radiation frost. I think that is why the leaves are growing longer and lusher than I was expecting. It may well tolerate a touch of frost if it remains dry through the winter. I was a little cautious at first because I received it under the old name of A. transvaalensis which just didn't sound very hardy!
