False Aloe

A low growing rosette of elongated, glossy leaves dotted with dark purple spots that often lie flat on the ground.  This cousin of Aloe (Aloe barbadensis) has very similar succulent-like leaves minus the pointy thorn-like projections.  False Aloe spreads slowly by rhizomes, and will eventually form a colony.  Every few years, a stalk up to 5' tall lined with pale greenish-white fragrant flowers will sprout from the center in late summer.  Seed capsules follow the persistent flowers.  This plant prefers dry, partial shade, and does well in an upland deciduous forest.  

Price: $10.00
