Aloe Sinkatana

This is a fairly common aloe, hardy down to about 25 degrees F. It's extremely drought tolerant but does appreciate water in hot, dry summers.

It's a great addition to rock or succulent gardens. It has light green leaves tinged with a glowing red/orange color. There are 1 to 2ft flower spikes that are very long lasting. They can be used indoors as cut flowers. It blooms mostly during the winter.

Karen, really enjoy the blending of colors!

That makes a pretty composition for a banner. Thumbs up
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

I have this as a houseplant during the winter, and it goes outside for Spring and Summer. When it bloomed it was inside, so I didn't get to see what was attracted to the flowers.
Thank you all for the Thumbs, Acorns, and kind comments!

@plantmanager

I'm not going to grow it, but I was just curious.

Oops! I just noticed what you said, so I didn't need to ask again. D'Oh!
