Aloe 'Conejo Flame' - An upright growing clustering aloe to 3-4 feet tall with attractive narrow deep green leaves with medium size teeth and vibrant red-orange flowers on a branched 2-3 foot tall inflorescence late winter into spring. Plant in a well-drained soil in full sun to light shade in the desert and water occasionally to infrequently. Cold hardy down to at least 25 F - undamaged here at those temperatures in 2007. This is a selection we made from plants growing at Jeff Chemnick's Aloes in Wonderland garden on Conejo Road in the foothills above Santa Barbara. It certainly has affinities with Aloe dawei, which we also grow, but has longer straighter leaves, blooms at a different time with richer red colored slightly larger flowers on a taller inflorescence. The origin of this plant has been forgotten so we commemorate Jeff's garden and the vibrant color of flowers with this name.  The information about Aloe 'Conejo Flame' displayed on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources we consider reliable. We will also relate those observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery gardens and in other gardens that we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments we receive from others and welcome hearing from anyone who has additional information, particularly when they share cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
