Aloe 'Sunrise' - A wild looking aloe that forms a cluster of 6 to 12 inch tall rosettes of gray-green leaves that have broken raised longitudinal orange ridges, like long dashes, on the upper surface of the leaves and orange-red flowers that rise above the leaves in winter. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil and give occasional to infrequent irrigation. Hardy to around 25 F. This is one of the new Kelly Griffin fancy-foliage hybrids that is being sold by Xeric Growers Nursery. As with many of Kelly's hybrids, this plant involves the crossing of several species over a number of generations. Xeric Growers notes that "Sunrise has incredible red highlighted ridges that cover the leaves. In good light, this plant blushes red and is a true stunner." Our plants and images from Xeric Growers Nursery.  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 'Sunrise'.
