Description

Trade name: Super Red™
Botanical name:  Aloe Hybrid 'LEO 3711"
Description: The flower performance of Super Red is truly spectacular as its flower season (masses of Red flowers) lasts from late summer to winter and it canproduce its first flower at a very young age. The grey-green plant starts growing a stem from an early age and the rosette divides when the plant is closer to maturity allowing an even greater flower display. Suitable as a feature plant in the garden, in a large pot or in tough landscaping conditions.
