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 provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Aloe 'Hot Flash'.
