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.

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.
