Red of Hue is the Aloe of Bullock

This is Aloe tauri, going into flower for the first time.

Normally a dusky red, the combination of the camera flash and wet leaves gives it a look that it doesn't deserve - it's not one of those gaudy, painted Aloes, no sir, not at all. We don't have that sort of thing in this country.

Still, better red than dead....

Beautiful Jeffrey,
I have some seedlings of some Aloe that are supposed to be on the red side. I hope they grow true to form.

Red of Hue is the Aloe of Bullock-overall thumb

Here's a thumbnail of an overall pic - it's truer to the actual color, but still doesn't quite capture the essence of red bull that partially defines this lovely.

That is a beauty. Someday I will be fortunate enough to own one. Until then, I will have to drool over yours.

Yep, that's a real beauty! On seeing it, my eyeballs must've popped out a bit, because my contact instantly dislodged (it really did!)

Just beautiful Jeff! I've been tempted so many times to get one of these, but without a greenhouse I wouldn't have the room it deserves. Truly beautiful, thanks for sharing.
