Aloe x nobilis 'Variegata' (Variegated Golden Toothed Aloe) - An evergreen rosette-forming succulent that suckers profusely, creating a large grouping to 18 inches tall of fleshy green leaves striped with yellow that have a tint of rose color on the tips and yellow to white, sharp but flexible teeth running along the edges with a few in spots on the inside of the leaves. The bright orange branched inflorescences rise well above the foliage to about 2 feet tall in mid-summer.

Plant in sun or light shade in sandy soil. Drought tolerant. Hardy to about 20 degrees F.

This plant has an unstable variegation that sometimes produces all green, all yellow or all nearly white rosettes of leaves. The plant that this variegated form sported from is thought by some to be a hybrid between Aloe mitriformis and A. brevifolia, but others suggest it may be the result of a cross between Aloe distans and A. brevifolia or perhaps a cross between Aloe arborescens and A. mitriformis. For more information on this plant see our listing for the non-variegated form, Aloe x nobilis
