Aloe saponaria

Aloe saponaria is also known as Orange Soap Aloe - Low growing succulent w/spotted leavess to 18" tall spreading to 2'+ w/orange fall flowers. Full sun/ light shade. Drought tolerant. 25-30 degrees F. Widespread in the ARID regions from Eastern Cape Province of South Africa to Zimbabwe and Botswana. Soap aloe grows in a (usually) stemless clumping rosette, that often overgrown in succulent gardens. The main rosette gets up to 30/45cm tall and just as wide. The lance shaped leaves are thick pale green spotted (with linear spots- almost streaked) foliage sometimes has reddish tinge and 25-30 cm long. The leaf margins have prominent dark brown teethare armed with prominent dark brown teeth. Throughout much of the summer, soap aloe sends up a purplish elegantly elaborate candelabrum-like stalk about 60/90 m tall, bearing showy yellow, orange or red flowers (first bloom is best). Flowers are often, but not always branched and flower head is a flatted globe in shape. Individual flowers are 5-7cm long.
