Aloe maculata 'Yellow Form' (Yellow Soap Aloe) - Stemless plant that reaches 18 inches tall by 2 feet wide that can sucker freely or grow solitarily. The foliage is dark green at the tips with a reddish tinge; the lower part of the leaf fades to a light green and is marked by faint white lines. The margins are lined with brown teeth. Yellow form has all of the same characteristics and cultural notes as the species, except the flower color and time of bloom which for us is in December and January. Hardy to about 25-30 degrees F. Plants originally came from the Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek. The typical orange flowered form of this species has long been in cultivation under the name Aloe saponaria but the correct name now appears to be Aloe maculata. It has been suggested by some botanists that the the better-known and long-used name, Aloe saponaria, be conserved as it is the name for the type plant for the section Saponariae but the group is also called the maculate aloes.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Aloe maculata 'Yellow Form'.
