Description

Aloe maculata, the Soap Aloe (and often referred to by one of its synonyms, Aloe saponaria) is a highly ornamental Aloe from a wide distribution range across southern Africa with broad foliage that is heavily mottled with pale spots, often with a linear shape or merged to form an H shape or other more complex shapes that are arranged in loose bandings laterally across the leaf, giving rise to another of its common names, the Zebra Aloe. Mature specimens bear a tall scape with a raceme of coral-coloured flowers that has a distinctive flattened shape at the top.

Aloe maculata is a tough and cold-tolerant Aloe but is not frost hardy. In the UK it needs to be brought indoors in early October and rested with very little water over winter before taking it outside again after the last Spring frosts.

The form listed here is a rarely-offered cultivar that produces very large and relatively fast-growing plants.
