Aloe glauca 'Genadendal' (Blue Aloe) - A rosette forming acaulescent clump forming aloe with 6 inch long gray-green leaves. It produces large rounded buds from which pale orange flowers emerge starting in fall and often lasting well into spring. Will grow well in sun or shade but foliage will be green unless in full sun. Can be Irrigated only occasionally, but also tolerates wetter winter conditions. Frost tolerant to below 20 F. This is one of the many forms of Aloe glauca - this form, from near Genadendal to the south of Bonnievale, is nearly stemless and smaller than most of the other varieties. Unlike the very pale Namaqualand form that we list as Aloe glauca 'Namaqualand' and is the more common in the California plant trade, this form has darker gray-green and shorter leaves and offsets liberally to make a large clump.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of this plant in our nursery crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We also will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Aloe glauca 'Genadendal'.
