Aloe plicatilis ~ Fan Aloe

Aloe plicatilis is a sculptural plant in every sense. As the branches age they give interest, the fans of succulent leaves do too and the fiery orange flowers do so as well in the Spring. Aloe plicatilis is native to South Africa. The Fan Aloe is not particular about soil but needs a dry environment. Aloe plicatilis prefers full sun but will grow well in a shady patch though deep shade is not advised. Aloe plicatilis is Winter hardy to 25-30°F.
