Aloe striata

Aloe striata
Winter is Aloe flowering time and many are budding up or coming into flower already. This species is one of the smooth leafed thornless Aloes which forms a neat ground hugging rosette making it a perfect specimen for small gardens or for growing as a container plant. The name striata means marked with lines and the blue green boat shaped leaves have a fine pin stripe over their surface. Being from South Africa it has an Afrikaans common name which is unusual to say the least : Gladdeblaaaraalwyn
2017 update: I do not have any stock of this Aloe.
