Aloe 'Dwarf White' - A very ornamental small aloe with 4-5 inch wide rosettes of narrow recurved gray leaves that have yellow edged margins bearing small but prominent recurved teeth. In mid fall through early winter appear the 1 foot tall unbranched spikes of cream flowers. Plant in full to part day sun in a well drained soil and irrigate occasionally to infrequently. Has proven hardy to 25F. This is a very attractive small aloe that we have only grown in a container but it should prove to be a nice addition in the foreground of the garden where a small fall-winter flowering plant is desired. This plant came to us in 2006 in the collection of the late Alice Waidhofer, a well know plant collector who lived in Stockton, California. The plant was simply tagged Aloe "Japanese Hybrid" and indicated that Ms. Waidhofer received the plant from Georgia plant collector and breeder Zack Presley. When contacted Mr. Presley noted that he had lost most of his plants and the records of them to a fire, but others have speculated that this might be a Aloe parvula cross with A. arborescens.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in the nursery, in the nursery's garden, and in other gardens where it has been observed. We also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing  Aloe 'Dwarf White'.
