Stock Number: 65051
Availability: In Stock
Family: Liliaceae
Cultural Code: HP TGH what's this?

"Burn Aloe" Shiny fleshy basil green leaves, pale spots fading with age; eventually central stalks energe with small yellow flowers. Nomenclature controversial; origin probably Canary Islands and Barbary Coast, but mentioned even in very ancient Chinese texts on medicine (and possibly an early traveler on the famous silk road). This is not the large statured, gray surfaced form found in the Canaries. This 'Chinensis' clone is considered to have undergone many re-selections over the centuries and is valued as the "Indian Medicine Plant" in the treatment of burns, sunburn, and rashes; as well as an ingredient of many salves and shampoos.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
