Aloe Safari Orange ['Andora'] PP28,003 (Safari Orange Aloe) - A very attractive midsized clustering aloe with foliage to about 3 feet tall spreading slightly wider with gray green upwardly inclined leaves that curve outwards near the tips. In mid-winter appear the many 2 foot long unbranched inflorescences with stunning bright orange narrow flowers that are darkest in bud and lighten as they open from the bottom of the inflorescence upwards. Plant in full sun to light shade in a fairly well drained soil and though a drought tolerant plants it can also tolerate more frequent irrigation. Hardy to around 23 F for short durations. A beautiful flowering plant for use as a showy specimen plant in the garden or as large container plant. It is very resistant and possibly immune to damage from aloe mite with 8 years of testing for this in South Africa. It is larger but a bit slower growing than the other aloes in the Safari Series, Safari Sunrise and Safari Rose. This plant comes from the breeding program of Quinton Bean and Andy de Wet at their nursery in Linbro Park, Republic of South Africa. The goal of the program was to make selections of hybrid Aloe with desirable horticultural characteristics to include improved vigor, flowering ability, and disease resistance. This plant is called 'Orange Delight' in South African and was first released in the US in spring 2014 by Ball Horticulture as part of its Safari Aloe Series. It received US Plant Patent PP28,003 on May 9, 2017.
