Aloe 'Malibu Peach' - A dense shrubby aloe to 4 to 5 feet tall or more by equal width with 18 inch wide rosettes of pale green red tinged leaves. In late fall through mid-winter appear the flowers on unbranched stems with the buds a light peach to orange and flowers opening to a cream color. Plant in full to part sun in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally to infrequently - Drought tolerant. Hardiness not known yet but based on its presumed parentage it will likely be hardy down to at least 25 F. We got our cuttings of this very attractive aloe in 2012 from a garden along the Malibu coast, where it was growing unirrigated along bluffs just above the beach. Those we have asked about it do not recognize it as any named cultivar but note that it looks to have affinities to Aloe arborescens. We named it 'Malibu Peach' until such time as someone may recognize it.  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 'Malibu Peach'.
