Aloe marlothii
Aloe marlothii

Aloe marlothii is a large and beautiful succulent that is well suited for borders, beds, rock gardens, Mediterranean gardens or succulent gardens. It can grow up to 8 or 10 ft. tall and 4 - 6 ft. wide. It will grow relatively easy in well-drained soil and in full sun. During the first month of having planted your succulent be sure to water it once a week. After the first month, you can minimize the amount of water given. A well-established aloe can tolerate getting very little or no water for several months. Another benefit of this aloe is that it is reasonably disease-free however, you should look out for mealy bugs and scale insects. The flowers of this aloe will also produce a nectar that is attractive to birds and bees.
