Easy, lovely in the garden and smaller than most Aloes, Aloe cooperi is hardier than most too – down to 10°F. The blooming stalks emerge in Summer, growing to 3’ tall and bear incredibly attractive flower heads to 1.5” across, green tipped with coral red blooms. The thin leaves are held in a fan shape and are evergreen in milder climates like ours (in the Bay Area). Aloe cooperi forms offsets freely. The leaves and flowers are eaten by the Zulu people. It is also used traditionally to ease birth. Needs very little water once established.
