It's a wonderful plant and does you great credit that it is so big and healthy. You prove that outside is the best place for it in summer. I can't imagine what size pot you would put it in. Have you ever entered it into the National?

We are going way off topic from the OP Liz but..
No I have not showed since my time in Hull Branch some thirty odd years ago, most of my plants I still class as being in 'rehab'. Perhaps one day some of them may get an outing to Bromley or Croydon but I think the National will be way out of my league for some time.
Regards Keith.

No-one asked :wink: It goes by a number of names. Aloe x nobilis is one, I think nowdays a few species and hybrids have been lumped into something called Aloe perfoliata Group.

Sorry I missed that you were looking for an ID. I think mine originally came to me as Aloe brevifolia in around 1980, though I would go with Paul's naming if I were you, identifying succulents has never been a strong point for me.

What an interesting post. I also have a couple of these"not named" aloes. Kept in the greenhouse they are poor specimens, seem dried out, and scorch. Mine go outside in spring and flourish. When there is heavy rain or hale the plants go under a garden table ( thanks Liz, I learned that from your tip). Same principles go for a number of aloes. They scorch in the greenhouse and also suffer from my frugal watering there. Outside these plants need potting into larger pots every year and are wonderful.
