I Once Had an Aloe Plant
I named it Binghampton, after a friend in grad school who had gone to SUNY undergrad. It was a bit yellow around the edges, but still perfectly serviceable.
Anyway, this is not that aloe.
But this is the end of Aloe week. Maybe I’ll post more aloes next week, or the week after, you never know what’s going to happen around here. But the officially sponsored events surrounding aloe week are now come to an end.
Aloe “Johnson’s Hybrid” in our new rice hull eco-pots. It’s one of the many species of grass aloes. Grows in large clumps that look like grass, until they send up the bloom stalks with orange tubular blooms. Then it looks more like a Kniphofia, or “Red Hot Poker”, so to speak.
