Bright orange flowers
Aloe humilis is a low-growing succulent plant. A beautiful blue/grey colored variety with soft, but relatively large spines. Succulent experts appreciate the bright orange-scarlet flowers that are produced regularly in March-April, and sometime later.
Born in South Africa
The Aloe belongs to the family of the Xanthorrhoeaceae and grows in the vast and rugged landscape of South Africa, mostly in the area of Port Elisabeth. Some varieties grow like trees and they can mostly be found in the North-West of South Africa all the way to in Namibia. The plants are stiff and rough, provided with thick fleshy leaves in which the plant stores water to tide over during the dry spells. The South African flora belongs to the most important floras in the world. No less than 10% of all known types of plants can be found here.
