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 about Aloe 'Sunrise' displayed on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources we consider reliable. We will also relate those observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery gardens and in other gardens that we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments we receive from others and welcome hearing from anyone who has additional information, particularly when they share cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
