Aloe 'Hot Flash' A very showy hybrid aloe to 2 to 3 feet tall with mostly solitary rosettes of 2 to 3 foot long gray-green slightly upturned leaves long narrowing tips and light colored teeth along the margins. In late fall into early winter appear the stout branching inflorescence with multiple stems rising 4 to 5 feet from the plants crown bearing tight overlapping dark red-orange buds held in a downward position that turn yellow as they open from the bottom up. A very stunning sight! Plant in full sun in a well drain soil and water occasionally to infrequently. The hardiness of this plant is as yet unknown but will likely be hardy to short duration temperatures down to the mid 20s. Aloe 'Hot Flash' was a selected seedling that was the result of open pollination of Aloe aculeata growing at Jeff Chemnick's Aloes in Wonderland. The seedling first bloomed in January 2016 and was named by Jeff Chemnick when he first saw the fiery combination of red, orange and yellow flowers.  The information on this page is based on our library and online research, as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others, and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Agave salmiana 'Tony's Tiger'.
