Aloe Moonglow ['LEO 3151A'] - A medium-sized singled-stemmed succulent to 32 inches tall by almost 2 feet wide with rosettes of fairly narrow gray-green leaves that arch strongly upwards with yellow teeth along the margins and some horizontal banding on the upper surface of the leaf. Starting in late fall, with peak bloom in midwinter, there appears an abundance of pale yellow flowers on branching inflorescences that rise well above the foliage this hybrid is noted as a heavy flower producer. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil and give occasional to infrequent summer irrigation. This hybrid is listed as frost tolerant and foliage is hardy to at least 25 F but winter flowers can be damaged at temperatures much below 30. This aloe comes from the breeding program of Leo Thamm of Sunbird Aloes in Johannesburg, South Africa and was introduced to the US nursery trade in 2012 by The Plug Collection.
