Aloe 'Splashy Lassie' - This small clump-forming aloe grows to about 1 foot tall with narrow, grass-like leaves that are deep-green with cream longitudinal stripes and have fine whitish teeth along the margins. In full sun the green portions take on a bronze color with the white portions reddening up. The bright orange flowers rise above the foliage to about 2 feet tall on and off throughout the year. Plant in full sun to light shade in a well-drained soil. Irrigate occasionally to regularly. The parent plant of this selection has sustained temperatures down to 28F without damage and likely could go a bit lower - some list it to 20 F but we can't verify this. We selected this plant in 2010 from a Kelly Griffin hybrid called Aloe 'Grassy Lassie' and thought the name 'Splashy Lassie' quite fitting. We hope to introduce this plant sometime in 2013.  The information provided on this page is based on the research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations of our nursery crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Aloe 'Splashy Lassie'.
