Last winter shots of Aloes in my garden... most Aloes moving to a high school botanical garden soon... Hope most survive. Here is a last shot of some of the flowering ones.
Aloe alooides (not in full flower yet)
Aloe arborescens yellow form
Aloe betsileensis (sorry, a bit sun bleached photo)
Aloe brandraaiensis (not quite in full flower yet)
Aloe dawei hybrid 'Jacob's Ladder'
Aloe diolii still has a few flowers left (flowered over a month ago)
Aloe greatheadii (I think)
Aloe hybrid in flower (this one is DZ)
Aloe lineata var. muirii
Aloe suffulta (not a very impressively pretty flower, but nearly 3' long for a dinky little aloe)
You have some very nice aloes there!! I think my favorite is the 3rd one from the bottom.
Did you know that you don't have to make a new post for each photo?? You can make one post and put all the pictures in there.I'm not very good at explaining that,but there is a tutorial on this web site.Check it out,it will make your posting a lot easier.
Moving to school.. they are lucky! You think you will miss them?
Good strategy for long term preservation for sure!
Lovely plants/flowers as usual.
That aloe speciosa might make it up in your new place with an occasional frost cloth. Brian Kemble has it listed with a bit of hardiness. It gets to 28 in habitat and can withstand 20. It is on my short list. I love that flower stalk you have there.
My month has been on a full tilt run. I run my my blooms. Not enough time to water or care. Not enough time to photo graph my flowers and now my aloes have mostly finished blooming. My husband broke his arm badly and I took over his work on top of my work. I did notice a Yucca treculena starting its thrust. maybe I can find time now that I am done with building this wall unit.
Lovely plants & blooms, Geoff! Lucky high school to be recipients of your generous donation before you move! Do they get instructions with them? Or will it be "educational", in SOS (Sink Or Swim) mode? :D
Lucky, lucky high school. Hope they appreciate and care for such treasures!
