Aloe 'Grassy Lassie' - This small clump-forming aloe grows to about 1 foot tall with deep-green, narrow, grass-like leaves that turn a bronze color in full sun and and have fine whitish teeth along the margins. Through much of the year the bright orange flowers rise above the foliage to about 2 feet tall. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil. Irrigate occasionally to regularly. We began growing this new Kelly Griffin hybrid in 2007 and it has sustained temperatures down to 28F without damage and likely could go a bit lower - some list it to 20 F but we can't verify this. This plant has proven itself to be a very showy grassy-foliaged aloe for mass planting or container gardening in California gardens. We also have selected a variegated form that we call Aloe 'Splashy Lassie'  The information displayed on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations that we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how it has performed in our crops out in the nursery field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well, and welcome hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information we do not mention that would aid others in growing Aloe 'Grassy Lassie'.
