Golden toothed aloe

Aloe x nobilis

Description

The golden toothed aloe is a small but robust plant that grows 8-12 in. tall and forms mounding colonies that can reach 24-30 in. high and spread 3-4 ft. wide. Short stout leaves are deep green and covered with golden hooked teeth on the margins. Red-orange flowers occur on 6-12 in. tall stalks from late spring through summer.

This hybrid aloe has intense flower color and is well suited to rock gardens, containers and as a feature plant in small spaces. It tolerates temperatures to 20°F, enabling it to be grown throughout the Inland Empire. The clumping character provides a pleasing texture and rosette pattern in garden plantings.
