Aloe vaombe (Aloaceae). Malagasy Tree Aloe. It is a large unbranched succulent with large solitary rosettes of recurved long smooth green leaves. These leaves are cupped shaped in cross section and take on rich red tones in winter. The firery red flowers are borne in erect branched racemes in mid winter. Plant in full sun and irrigate little once established. This large Aloe comes from Southern Madagascar. It is great centerpiece specimen for the frost free garden with red foliage and flowers making a stunning combination. The flowers attract bees and birds to the garden. Sowing : The seeds germinate very well but may damp off if over-watered. Use a mixture of river sand, compost and soil to sow seeds in. Sprinkle the seeds evenly on the surface and cover with a layer of small pebbles. The pebbles help the seedlings to stay upright and prevent damping off. Keep seed tray in a dry warm corner and do not allow to dry out. Transplant the seedlings after one year. Locality : Ex Hort. Date of harvest : Jan 2017
