Full sun-light shade; low water. Succulent plant native to South Africa. Grows to 2-3 feet tall and wide, producing multiple rosettes around. Stemless rosettes densely packed with upright, curved smooth grey-green leaves with small sharp reddish-brown spines along the margins. The beautiful bi-colored red and yellow flowers appear well above the leaves in branched racemes in late winter with red buds opening to yellow flowers from the bottom of the inflorescence up. This plant is often included into Aloe cryptopoda but this bi-colored form has long been grown under the name Aloe wickensii with Aloe cryptopoda being a more uniformly all yellow or all red form. Well-drained soil. Hardy to 20°F.
