Aloe Hybrid Sunset at sunset, a drought tolerant plant

As promised, a photo of the Aloe Hybrid Sunset at Sunset. There are well over 500 cultivars of aloe, many of which are recent hybrids, and more often than not, we the growers, can’t tell them apart. But this aloe, Hybrid Sunset, is a remarkable hybrid. Kelly Griffin, a renowned breeder of aloe, and other succulents, has produced a number of hybrid aloes, including this one. Treat these aloes well. By well we mean, put them in good light and forget about them. Little water, good light, and you’ll be enjoying a hybrid aloe at sunset for many years.
