Aloe arborescens 'Lutea' (Golden Torch Aloe) - This is the yellow form of Torch Aloe (Aloe arborescens), a large densely growing species with red flowers that can grow to 9 feet tall by an equal spread. Variety 'Lutea' has yellow flowers that hang tightly on unbranched inflorescences that rise 2 feet above the foliage in late fall and early winter. The 18 inch wide rosettes have leaves that are narrow and recurved with soft toothed margins. Leaf color varies with amount of sunlight but is typically a dull green or yellowish blue-green. This form is a little slower growing and we have never seen it nearly as large as the species - some note this plant gets only 4-5 feet tall. Plant in full sun (coast) to light shade. This drought tolerant plant does great in coastal California without any supplementary irrigation. Hardy to about 22 degrees F.  The information about Aloe arborescens 'Lutea' displayed on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources we consider reliable. We will also relate those observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery gardens and in other gardens that we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments we receive from others and welcome hearing from anyone who has additional information, particularly when they share cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
