Aloe 'Pandan' (Screw Pine Aloe) An unusual and attractive small tree aloe that likely will reach 10 feet or more with full rosettes of 2 to 3 foot long narrow smooth mid-green leaves that are strongly channeled (caniculate) on the upper surface and have only tiny well-spaced teeth along the leaf margin. In mid fall appear the branching inflorescence that rises 12 to 18 inches above the foliage bearing very attractive dark salmon-pink flowers. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well drained soil and irrigate occasionally to infrequently. Ultimate hardiness is not known but judging by this hybrids parentage it likely is hardy to 25-30 F. This plant is a hybrid between the large tree aloe, Aloe barberae, and the fan aloe, Aloe plicatilis. Our understanding is that this cross was made by Ronald Regehr of Cactus Canyon Nursery. By most recent nomenclatural changes these two species have been separated into different genera as Aloidendron barberae for the tree aloe and Kumara disticha for the fan aloe, making this plant technically an intergeneric hybrid but we continue to list all species still as Aloe. The name 'Pandan' was coined by Jeff Chemnick from whose garden we got our cuttings of this unusual plant that has some resemblance to a Screw Pine, Pandanus utilis.  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 'Pandan'.
