Aloe 'Erik, Red & White' - These hybrid aloe seedlings come from Aloe hybridizer Brent Wigand of Wildomar California and combine the genes of the beautiful hybrid Aloe 'Erik the Red', itself a complex hybrid involving Aloe mawii, A. petricola, A. marlothii and A. arborescens, with the stunning Aloe ferox 'White'. Our plan is to grow these plants on to select a the best ones to continue on as individual clones. Plant in full sun and irrigate little to regularly - plants of both parent species are known to tolerate dry conditions but will likely look best and flower better with occasion irrigation. Hardiness is as yet unknown but both parents are cold hardy at least down to the mid to high 20s F.  The information about Aloe 'Erik, Red & White' displayed on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources we consider reliable. We will also relate those observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery gardens and in other gardens that we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments we receive from others and welcome hearing from anyone who has additional information, particularly when they share cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
