Aloe 'Sunrise' - A wild looking aloe that forms a cluster of 6 to 12 inch tall rosettes of gray-green leaves that have broken raised longitudinal orange ridges, like long dashes, on the upper surface of the leaves and orange-red flowers that rise above the leaves in winter. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil and give occasional to infrequent irrigation. Hardy to around 25 F. This is one of the new Kelly Griffin fancy-foliage hybrids that is being sold by Xeric Growers Nursery. As with many of Kelly's hybrids, this plant involves the crossing of several species over a number of generations. Xeric Growers notes that "Sunrise has incredible red highlighted ridges that cover the leaves. In good light, this plant blushes red and is a true stunner." Our plants and images from Xeric Growers Nursery.  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 'Sunrise'.
