Sunbird Aloes 'Erik the Red'

  • Created as a striking feature plant, its release was eagerly awaited by all who have seen it in flower. With tall, blood-red inflorescences towering over nearby plants of similar size, this tall stemmed beauty (as tall as a man) is indeed a focal point in any aloe planting. The leaves are green with a prominent spiny edge, a fitting foil for the glowing color of the flowers. Even the smallest buds are deep red in color and seeing that they are not covered by leafy bracts they announce the arrival of something special long before the first flowers actually open.

    Aloe ‘Erik the Red’ flowers in late winter. It is named after the breeder’s eldest son with whom it shares its tall stature.

    Best recorded flowering performance from a single rosette: 4 inflorescences with a total of 18 racemes or flower spikes.

    Available in 8L @ R250.00 and 20L bag sizes @ R450.00
