Aloe spicata

Lebombo Aloe
Plant Type:

General Size: small

Flowering Time: spring


As the name indicates, this aloe occurs in abundance in the Lebombo Mountains, Northern Kwazulu Natal, Southern Mozambique, Swaziland, Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces. Do protect them if you have a frosty garden. They are either single or multi stemmed up to 2m and produce masses of yellow flowers. It grows well in the sun or the semi shade and has attractive reddish leaves in the winter. The word Aloe comes from the Greek and refers to the bitter leaf gel.
