Aloe 'Sunshine' - This succulent plant forms clusters of rosettes of upright fleshy mid green leaves with yellow evenly spaced teeth along the margins. In late summer through fall and possibly into winter appear the 2 to 3 foot tall slender stemmed branched inflorescences holding bright lemon yellow flowers. Plant in full sun in a well-drained soil and give little to occasional irrigation. Hardiness is as yet determined but has handled temperatures just below freezing and likely is still a bit hardier. This plant is a nice yellow flowering landscape aloe with attractive green foliage. We first received this plant from a tissue culture lab labeled as an orange flowering aloe cultivar that has very similar foliage and only noted it to be different as it came into flower. It really is one of the brightest yellow flowering aloes we have and the flowers stand attractively against the green foliage. We have coined the name 'Sunshine' for this very cheery plant while we work out with the breeder what name he intends to actually apply to it.  The information that is presented on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it in the nursery's garden and in other gardens we have visited, as well how it performs in our nursery crops out in the field. We incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they know of cultural information that would aid others in growing  Aloe 'Sunshine'.
