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 on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Aloe 'Conejo Flame'.
