Hardy Aloe

  • Hardy Aloe


Hardy or Striped-Stemmed Aloe has an impressive silhouette comprising rosettes of long, bright green leaves with serrated edges. When mature, this exceptional aloe variety can reach up to 1.5 metres in height and 2 metres in width in optimal growing conditions. It is even more spectacular between May and June, when large clusters of blooms emerge from the centre of its leaves, forming magnificent tufts of tubular flowers ranging in colour from lemon yellow to orange yellow. The blooms attract many pollinating insects.

Aloe striatula is the most frost-resistant of all the aloe varieties. It thrives in flowerbeds or rockeries and on embankments, sheltered from the wind and with plenty of sunshine, or even in a tub that can be brought inside for winter in cold areas. It harmonizes perfectly with other succulent plants such as agaves and sedums.

Hardy Aloe’s very decorative and graphic allure is ideal for Mediterranean gardens, such as those found at our campsite Les Jardins de la Pascalinette.
