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 on this page is based on our research conducted in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing  Aloe globuligemma.
