Gasteraloe 'Midnight', also known as Midnight Aloe or Lizard Tail, is a hybrid succulent originating from a cross between Aloe and Gasteria species. This evergreen plant features unique dark foliage that can turn nearly black under optimal light conditions. Compact and low-maintenance, it is ideal for succulent collections and can thrive in various light settings. Typically, Gasteraloe 'Midnight' grows to 8-12 inches in height and about 1 foot in width, forming a dense rosette of narrow, knobby leaves with soft, tiny teeth along the margins. The leaves, which start as dark green, develop reddish highlights and can turn deep purple to nearly black with sufficient light. It blooms in winter and spring, producing 18-inch tall inflorescences with pale orange, bell-shaped flowers that contrast with the dark foliage. This hybrid was primarily developed by Kelly Griffin at Rancho Soledad Nursery and is commonly found in South Africa. Gasteraloe 'Midnight' thrives in well-drained soil with full sun to light shade and has low water needs, making it suitable for drought-tolerant landscapes. It is best to let the soil dry thoroughly between waterings. It can be grown outdoors in garden beds or indoors as a houseplant, with full sun being ideal in coastal areas and some shade recommended in hotter regions to prevent leaf scorching. Cold hardy down to 25-30°F, it can withstand light frost but should be protected or brought indoors in colder areas. This plant is well-suited for USDA zones 9 to 11. Gasteraloe 'Midnight' is an excellent addition to succulent collections and container gardens due to its compact size and unique coloration. Its dark foliage contrasts well with other plants, making it an attractive focal point in xeriscaping and rock gardens, and it adds an exotic touch to indoor spaces.
