Aloe 'Hot Flash' A very showy hybrid aloe to 3 feet tall by as wide with a mostly solitary rosette of 2 to 3 foot long gray-green slightly upturned lanceolate leaves that have 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 vertically 4 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-drained 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 F. Aloe 'Hot Flash' is a selected seedling that was the result of open pollination of Aloe aculeata growing at Jeff Chemnick's amazing 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. We got our first piece of this beautiful aloe in 2016 and are working as fast as we can to make it available.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in the nursery, in the nursery's garden, and in other gardens where it has been observed. We also incorporate comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that might aid others in growing  Aloe 'Hot Flash'.
