This aloe shows its best colors if kept on the dry side during the winter and under those conditions can accept temperatures to near 25F. It's a summer grower and adds a great accent in the right place.
For those in the Portland, Oregon area, we'll be having a plant sale on our lawn next weekend, August 20 & 21: Saturday, 10 am to 7 pm, and Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm. Drop by for a cup of coffee or soda and conversation...and perhaps find a plant you just can't do without :) . This is separate from the OCSS picnic and open house on the 28th. Directions to our place are at the OCSS site.
