Aloe PERI PERI
Aloe PERI PERI was bred to be a small garden and pot plant, specifically for colder gardens as well. It flowers in early autumn/fall in a profusion of pinky-red before the heavy frosts arrive. Planted as a border plant in mass in dryer, sunny gardens, it can create a tremendous splash of color. Aloe PERI PERI will also do well as a pot plant or in a smaller garden or rockery. It grows easily and is immune to aloe cancer and most other slow diseases, except it can get black spot in high alkaline gardens. Like most aloes it feeds sunbirds/hummingbirds and many species of insects.
This slow is ideal for commercial gardens where mass planting is the norm. The University of Pretoria is awash with red in autumn as it is one of the base plants in Jason Sampsons layout.
