Winter flowering aloes; the season has started.

We have about twenty different aloe species in the garden; all native to Africa and all genuine species (no nursery hybrids). Part of it is Winter flowering and virtually all of these originate from the Western Cape. Here is one in our border along the street.

Time for the Winter flowering aloes

Rain or shine; this Aloe hybrid will flower for months to come. After our arrival here in Stanford, 20 months ago, we undertook a major job by removing a hedge with invasive shrubs and planted the strip along the wooden fence with water wise succulent plants. These all grow nicely.
