Aloe speciosa

 In Flowers, Gardens, Plants

Aloe speciosa is indigenous to the thicket vegetation of the southern Cape Provinces of South Africa but we are lucky to have one in the Glass House here at the Dorothy Clive Garden. It was kindly donated to us some years ago and this is the first time we have seen it in flower.
More commonly known as the Tilt-headed Aloe is named because of the way that its rosette tilts to one side, in the direction of the greatest sun, to the north.
It will be in flower for the new 2 weeks at most so don’t miss out, come and visit the Dorothy Clive Garden.
