Aloe 'Bright Ember' - A wild looking aloe that forms a cluster of tight rosettes with 6 to 8 inch long leaves that are bright green with raised yellow pointed dashes and teeth on both the upper and lower surfaces and along the leaf margins - these teeth are particularly showy when backlit and while they look wicked, are actually soft to the touch. The orange flowers rise just above the foliage 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. Our plants and images from Xeric Growers Nursery.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Aloe 'Bright Ember'.
