coast aloe



Posted by Picasa                        I fudged a little on the name, as there are several sub species of coast aloe--from Madagascar, and the African coast. I'm pretty sure this is a. thraskii but not positive. All the Coast aloes grow tall, all have these blossoms once a year. They are most dramatic against a wall---the ones in the photo apparently grew up under this tree, having been planted as mid-sized aloes, surprising everyone by growing 15 feet tall.
