    Description

    Blue Elf Aloe is a lovely, one-of-a-kind succulent that is ideal for any garden or landscape. A heat loving, tough succulent, Blue Elf Aloe is well-known for its compact clumping rosettes of narrow, upright silver-blue leaves and small size, making it an excellent choice for rock gardens, succulent gardens, or as a container plant. The succulent blue leaves are lined with soft, small white teeth along the edges. The cool blue foliage contrasts with the orange-coral colored tubular flowers that bloom from winter to early spring and is attractive to hummingbirds. This long blooming aloe is one of our favorite and most popular aloes for landscapes. The Blue Elf Aloe is a dwarf hybrid aloe that is easy to grow and suitable for both experienced and inexperienced gardeners. It grows best in well draining soil and prefers full sun but will tolerate light partial shade. It is drought-tolerant and heat-tolerant, making it an excellent choice for rock gardens, xeriscaping, or succulent gardens planted in mass or scattered throughout. Blue Elf is a small aloe that looks beautiful planted in containers for your patio or balcony. Blue Elf Aloe is waterwise and simple to care for. Order your low maintenance Blue Elf Aloe from Plants Express today to add a unique and eye-catching feature to your garden.

    Plant care

    Plant Blue Elf Aloe in a location that receives a minimum of 6 hours full sun. The beautiful blue foliage color is best in full sun but may appreciate some afternoon shade in hot inland gardens. 

    Water your Blue Elf Aloe deeply after planting, then reduce frequency allowing the soil to dry in between waterings. Water sparingly and avoid over-watering, which can cause root rot. The plant will be drought-tolerant once established, but may need supplemental water during prolonged dry spells.

    Fertilizing the Blue Elf Aloe is not necessary, but if you want to give it a boost, feed it with a balanced cactus fertilizer once a year. Overfertilization can burn the roots and harm the plant, so be cautious.

    Pruning your Blue Elf Aloe is not necessary, but you can remove dead or damaged leaves and spent flowers to keep the plant looking neat and tidy.

    The Blue Elf Aloe is a small and compact plant that can grow up to 1-2 feet tall and wide. It has blue-gray leaves with small white soft teeth along the edges and produces orange-red tubular flowers in the summer. It works well in rock gardens, succulent gardens, and as a container plant. It is low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, and grows well in rocky or sandy soil. It will be a treasured addition to any landscape with its distinctive silvery blue leaves and orange-red tubular flowers.
