Aloe striata

Aloe striata is a stemless aloe with blue green leaves. The leaves are spineless having a smooth reddish margin without any teeth. Without the sun the margins remain green in color. Attractive coral red flowers are borne during the winter months on tall flat-topped inflorescences. It grows in stony soils on rocky hillsides in arid areas near the coast and the drier inland karoo areas. As with most aloes, Aloe striata provide nectar during winter which is an important source of food for the attractive sunbirds and many other nectivorous birds during the cooler period of the year when food is not readily available. They are fairly easy to cultivate and tolerate a wide variety of climatic conditions if it is planted in a well-drained soil in full sun and given adequate water but not over-watered. Propagation is from seed which grow fast, reaching flowering size in three to four years. The plant lower left had just been watered.
