Aloe striata hybrid commonly known as ‘Ghost Aloe’ has chiseled, triangular leaves form ghostly colored rosettes up to 1.5 feet across, and never exceeding 8” tall. The frosty, light colored leaves pick up an interesting amethyst tint when dry, or during cool winter temperatures. Its winter/early spring blossoms will startle you with brilliant orange flowers suspended 2ft above the plant on tall candelabra stems. Pups, or offshoots, form around the base of the mother plant, eventually producing nice clumps of up to 3 feet across. Full sun to part shade, very salt tolerant at ocean-side locations, does well from regular garden watering to very water-wise.
