Trade name: Aries™
Botanical name: Aloe Hybrid 'LEO 4134'
Description: The striking short spotted leaves with a stunning decorative edge make this little aloe hybrid special. This aloe is grown more for its leaf form than flowers as the pink flowers that change to creamy white when open are not significant. However one advantage is that they have no set flower period and open at different times in spring, summer, autumn and winter. A bed of these aloes is therefore likely to have some flowers throughout the year. Suitable as a trailing plant over rockeries, retaining walls, hanging baskets or as a pot specimen.
