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.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We will also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information about this plant, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Aloe 'Splashy Lassie'.
