The Aloe humilis, also known as the hedgehog aloe, is a wonderful, low-growing succulent that forms crowded clusters. It is stemless, with rosettes up to 20 cm in diameter, often forming dense groups of 10 or more. The leaves are triangular, thick, pale blue-green, and adorned with irregular bumps and soft spines resembling small white prickles and nodules. In late winter to spring, it produces a simple inflorescence roughly 1 foot tall, bearing bell-shaped, bright orange-scarlet flowers. Native to arid areas from Mosselbay in the east through the Little Karoo to Grahamstown in the west and north to Somerset East and Graaf-Reinett, Aloe humilis is adaptable and requires little care. While it can tolerate light shade, it thrives best in full sun and benefits from occasional watering, although it is drought-tolerant. Frost hardy to the low 20s F, it is suitable for landscaping in mild climates and can be cultivated in rocky, exposed areas of the garden or as a container plant on a patio, provided the soil is well-draining.

This plant has been grown in a 4" pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. The plant is shipped "dry-root" (with out soil).
