Hybrid Aloes

Laura RobichaudSeptember 6, 2013

I have some really cute aloes. Some had tags, some didn't. They did some nice growing this summer outside.

Pretty sure the first two pictures are Christmas Carol:


Unknown aloe:

Aloe Donnie:

Unknown Aloe...this one is on the larger size of small. The edges turn orange in the sun:

Aloe Jimmy:

Aloe Twilight Zone:

Aloe Minnibelle:

Unknown but could be Pink Blush or Lizard Lips?

I think #2 is an A. deltoideodonta, I think. There are several varieties. KG just came out with one that is hitting the trade call "Sparkler". I don't think it is it. That one is larger. and the markings on the leaf are accompaanied by some light vertical markings.

Very nice! I love al these new breeds popping u great pics!
I picked up a good sized Kalancholoe at home depot of all places (i think it's called mother of tousands or something like that) well the little plantlets are similar to your Pink Blush and make the main plan pink on the outside.
Very cool!

They're all looking great! I agree with W about the deltoideodonta. The one right below Donnie might be 'Fang'. I really like 'Twilight Zone', haven't seen that one. I think it has some Gasteria in its lineage, or maybe even a little H. pumila? The last one is 'Pink Blush', fo sho.

If you like hybrid Aloes, here's something to get excited about! Introducing 'Frederic', 'Fritz', 'Francois', 'Fergie' and the rest!

Ryan all those "F" aloes are SO cool! Are you their creator?

Laura, I can't pass them by either. I love how they are mostly small, as space is at a premium!

Thanks, Laura! They're not really named yet but yes, I hold the paintbrush in that relationship. We should have some interesting results in the next year.

Massive Daddy Ryan,

I'll take 'Festus' in the middle right, please. BTW, when the sucker mcs try to chump your style let them know that you're versatile

Laura,

I used to be a species snob, back when I had the room and the opportunity to have hundreds of them, eschewing the hybrids. Now that I don't have the room, I've joined the hybrid club, while still having a few species - they're both a way to have Aloe love all year long, never mind what's in the woodpile.

I must admit that I am a species snob with a few mutts hiding in the corners. Some are even NAMELESS mutts without pedigree.

I like to find out names so I can read more about them and look at pics on the web. Other than that, just love the plants.

MC Hank, your 'Festus' is my requestus. It's going to be interesting, picking out the best and culling the rest. It's gonna hurt but it's the responsible thing to do.

Mara, I know you have the magic touch!

Nil, Let's see 'em!!!

Hi Laura,

I just wanted to bump this thread up so you would see it. I've responded to every email you've sent but I don't get the impression you've received any of my replies. I even sent you an email through Garden Web.

Thank you for the package! I hope you see this because I really wanted to say thanks and see what you might fancy in return.

Ryan, they went to spam. SO sorry! Not sure what's going on with that.

You're welcome.

OMG I have room for NOTHING right now. Everything's going inside now here in Mass. I have to bring some of the cacti up to my cabin in VT because most will do well in the cool (55 degrees) temps during the week with low care in the winter. I'm keeping the aloes, echeverias, mesembs, epis in Mass. Can I take a rain check?

Awesome! I'm so glad this worked, figured I might be in your spam. I'm sure you've marked me as "not spam" for the future.

Well, ok, no package for now. A rain check it is. So, you were cleaning house on me, huh?:) Good thing I got your attention, I was just going to send a package anyway. It was very nice of you to send the package even though you hadn't received a reply from me.

Well, your babies have found a good home. I can't wait to see the blooms on 'Twilight Zone'!
It's foggy here today.
