Aloe globuligemma - An aloe that is stemless or has creeping horizontal stems with 2-3 foot tall rosettes of erect blue-green leaves that arch outward near the tips and have white soft spines along the leaf margins. In late to mid winter appears the wide branched inflorescence with nearly horizontal stems of roundish red buds angled upward from the stem that open to a rosy pink and white. It comes from the warm low bush-veld in Mpumalanga in northern South Africa through Limpopo into Zimbabwe. Plant in full sun and irrigate regularly to occasionally in warm weather. Listed as suffering from leaf damage when temperatures drop into the mid 20'sF. The specific epithet 'globuligemma' is latin for "globular bud" in reference to the shape of the bud. The Africaans name Knoppiesaalwyn has a similar meaning. The sap of this species is considered to be poisonous.  The information about Aloe globuligemma displayed on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources we consider reliable.
