August is Aloe Month

18 July 2010 No Comment

August is when many Aloes start flowering. Mine are budding up now. Aloe flowers are spectacular are long lasting. My local wattle birds love to feast on them.

First up is Aloe Ferox which has a massive glorious flower spike each year. This aloe now stands about ten feet tall.

I found this little abandoned on the footpath, this is the first year I’ve had two flower spikes.

Most satisfying for me of all is to see my Fan Aloe coming into flower. This is the first sign I’ve had that this magnificent plant survived the ordeal of transplanting earlier this year.
