Aloe 'Orange Beauty' - A beautiful large shrubby aloe that has recurved green leaves and light orange flowers on a branched inflorescence in mid winter. Plant in full sun in a well drained soil and irrigate occasionally to infrequenty. We are not sure yet how big this plant will get but it looks to have Aloe arborescens in it so expect it to be pretty good size. This plant was selected and named by San Marcos Growers as a seedling from an open pollinated Aloe maculata hybrid. The seed was collected in 2011 from seed one of the nurseries Aloe maculata 'Aurea' stock plants.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Aloe 'Orange Beauty'.
