Aloe and Temperature Tolerance
A friend gave me this aloe plant about 6 months ago and I planted it here on the south side of my house where it gets several hours of direct sunlight a day and is shaded the rest of the day by the AC unit and the house. The soil is sandy but I get about 50 inches of rain a year. It has done really well and I removed some of the larger pups several weeks ago. Now (previous to this photo) it is sending up a shoot to flower! Hopefully it will flower before we get a hard freeze. We seldom get temperatures in the 20s so I think I can keep it here through the winter rather than digging it up and potting it. Just how low can an aloe plant go before it freezes?
