Sunbird Aloes 'Coral Red'

  • The coral-like clusters of red flowers make this a spectacular aloe cultivar. It is a large, easy-to-grow tall stemming plant. Normally the rosette reaches maturity before it starts rising off the ground. It can take a few years before a proper trunk has formed.

    ‘Coral Red’ has beautifully structured, chunky grey-green leaves that sometimes have a pinkish hue in winter. As a feature plant in gardens or landscaping, it excels in every respect. Indeed, it is hard to imagine anything that could surpass its mass of bright red flowers. No aloe garden should be without one.

    Planting tip: This aloe can become top-heavy, particularly when the trunk starts exceeding 1,5m in height. It may then start leaning over and may require support to keep it from going down all the way.

    Best recorded flowering performance from a single rosette plant: 3 simultaneous inflorescences and a total of 106 racemes.

    Available in the 8L size.
