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 about Aloe glauca 'Genadendal' 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.
