Aloe 'Johnson's Hybrid' - A small Aloe that makes dense clumps with short stems bearing narrow 6 to 8 inch long leaves that arch upwards and then out at the tapered tip. The leaves are bright green with white spots and have tiny white teeth along the margins. The flowers, borne in dense racemes at the end of 1 foot tall stems nearly year round, are bright orange with green tips and yellow interiors. Plant in full coastal sun to light shade in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally. Hardy to at least 20 F (This plant survived temperatures to 18 F in 1990 with minimal protection.) We originally got this beauty from the Huntington Botanic Gardens Plant Sale in 1984 as Aloe bellatula 'Johnson's Hybrid'. We grew it from 1987 through 1990 and have picked it back up due to more recent demand.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery and our own landscape plantings and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments we receive from others and appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Aloe 'Johnson's Hybrid'
