Aloe 'Fairy Pink' A small stemless clumping aloe that grows to nearly 1 foot tall in upright rosettes of 8 inch long pale green leaves that have a soft serrated leaf edge. In late summer through fall into winter (if mild) appear the sparingly-branched inflorescences rising 12 to 18 inches above the leaves with delicate white flowers that have buds tipped in green and are lightly blushed apricot-pink at the base, especially on older flowers. Plant in a well-drained soil in full, filtered sun or part shade but flowering best with bright light. Water occasionally spring through fall. This aloe is not reported to be very cold hardy and should be protected from frost though we had a stock plant tolerate a few frost nights around 31 F without damage. A great little plant for a potted specimen or used in the landscape in a protected site with a well-drained soil so great in a raised bed or mound and when happy can produce a very impressive floral display. This aloe comes from the breeding program of Leo Thamm of Sunbird Aloes in Johannesburg, South Africa and was introduced to the US nursery trade in 2012 by The Plug Collection.  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 'Fairy Pink'.
