Sunbird Aloes ‘Oribi Gorge’

Size: Small

Colour: Yellow

Flower Time: Late summer and autumn

Stem: Stemless


As its name suggests this little yellow-flowered grass aloe hybrid contains genetic material from a small aloe that occurs, inter alia, at Oribi Gorge in KZN. This is a high rainfall area, so ‘Oribi Gorge’ can be expected to deal with water much easier than some of the other small aloe cultivars. It produces its flowers during the second half of summer, often into the colder months as well. Short racemes are carried on multiple, stout inflorescences. The stemless plant itself has long, soft, green leaves lined with soft, white spines. It produces shoots (suckers) readily and, provided there is no overcrowding (remove excess, leave only 4 or 5), these shoots will soon add to the already impressive flowering of the main plant. The soft foliage of this plant is an indication that it does not deal with cold well and it may lose its leaves if left unprotected during a cold winter.

Sold bare-rooted from a 3.5L bag size.
