Aloe 'Grassy Lassie' - This small clump-forming aloe grows to about 1 foot tall with deep-green, narrow, grass-like leaves that turn a bronze color in full sun and and have fine whitish teeth along the margins. Through much of the year the bright orange flowers rise above the foliage to about 2 feet tall. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil. Irrigate occasionally to regularly. We began growing this new Kelly Griffin hybrid in 2007 and it has sustained temperatures down to 28F without damage and likely could go a bit lower - some list it to 20 F but we can't verify this. This plant has proven itself to be a very showy grassy-foliaged aloe for mass planting or container gardening in California gardens. We also have selected a variegated form that we call Aloe 'Splashy Lassie'  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any 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 'Grassy Lassie'.
