Product Details


Aloe dorotheae 'Canary Yellow': The only cultivar of the Sunset Aloe that blooms with bright yellow, tubular flowers in winter. It is a vigorous, clumping Aloe that produces lots of offsets around its base, reaching 2.0' wide by 1.0' tall after about two years of growth. This cultivar has spotted leaves with deeply serrated margins. It has a lime green base color, but will flush a bright, glossy red when moderately stressed by full sun, drought, or cool temperatures around 50F. This plant is fully rooted in a 3.5" round plastic pot.

Soft succulents will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They need bright sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.
