Aloe polyphylla
Aloe polyphylla
This fascinating succulent's been in high demand for many years, but until now only a few connoisseurs have been satisfied. Its spiraling leaf pattern bedazzles all who see it. It can spiral either clockwise or anticlockwise and long-established plants flower in spring or summer, though not always reliably so.

A once-rare, and possibly the most spectacular, of all South African aloes.

Uses: Excellent when used in a large container on the deck or patio.
Position: Needs excellent drainage - will thrive in a coarse poor soil. Tolerant of extremes of weather - heat, cold, wind and even snow. Sunny to partly shaded aspect.
Care: Little needed; this one's a toughie. The older leaves will shrivel up with time and should not be removed until they do so.
