Aloe x 'Christmas Carol' Family: Xanthorrhoeaceae. One of the most beautiful hybrid Aloes! This is a complex hybrid made by Kelly Griffin which includes 'Doran Black' as a parent. The leaves are bumpy with teeth along the margins. The margins and bumps are red and the main part of the leaf is red and green (Christmas colors!).
You can bring out even more red color in the plants by putting it in higher light and/or water stressing them some. Colors come out better in cooler weather as well. This plant clumps readily. I went from a single head to around 20 offsets in 2 years! Plant stays small. Individual heads reach around 4-6" diameter and clumps can live in 6-8" pots for years. Takes normal succulent care. This is a summer growing Aloe that prefers it drier in the winter. Protect from frost.
Please note: The color on these plants is highly variable depending on conditions. They vary from green leaves with red edges to dark blue purple with bright red edges. Regardless of how they look when they arrive, your conditions will determine the ultimate coloration it settles on (which can continue to change as your conditions change!).
You will receive a plant shown in the last image or one similar. Plants shown in a 4" pot.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
