Coral Aloe can grow in full, hot sun but leaf tips may burn and the leaves may appear distressed. Some light afternoon shade will provide relief in the hot, dry inland gardens. In coastal gardens, Coral Aloe grows well in full sun. Aloe striata is a fantastic choice for California gardens and landscapes.
Water your Coral Aloe sparingly and steer clear of overwatering, which can cause root rot. Watering deeply then allowing the soil to dry up between waterings may be the best practice to follow. The plant will tolerate drought once it is established, but will look best with some water or shade during extended dry spells.
Plant your Coral Aloe in soil that drains well or use Kellogg Palm & Cactus Mix for better drainage if planting in the ground or a container.
Although fertilizing the Coral Aloe Plant is not required, it is recommended to feed during its active growth period once a year with a balanced fertilizer. Avoid over fertilizing as this can burn the plant's roots and harm the plant.
The Coral Aloe will flourish in your garden and become a lovely and eye-catching addition to your landscape for years and is a fantastic choice for succulent gardens, rock gardens, or xeriscape gardens. The striking and distinctive leaves and coral colored flowers will add interest to any landscape.
