Aloe 'Good As Gold' A stemless hardy Aloe maculata hybrid to 1 tall by 2 feet wide. It has board lanceolate leaves with white spots like typical Aloe maculata (AKA Aloe saponaria) with a 2 foot tall branching inflorescence of bright orange flowers in the early spring. Ideally suited for full sun but grows vegetatively very well in light shade with limited flowering. Drought tolerant. Hardy to about 15-20 degrees F. We got this tough aloe from Pat McNeal of McNeal Growers when visiting Austin for the 2013 Cactus and Succulent Society of American Convention. Pat told us that he got the plant from garden designer, nurseryman and author Tom Peace who had it from his parents garden in Lockhart, Texas, where it was growing up against the wall of the home and tolerating temperatures down to the mid-teens.  The information displayed on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations that we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how it has performed in our crops out in the nursery field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well, and welcome hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information we do not mention that would aid others in growing Aloe 'Good As Gold'.
