November flowers - Aloe jucunda

This easy-growing Madagascan miniature had a flower spike developing in the summer, which shrivelled up in the heat of a dry spell. So it was good of it to have another go in the autumn, living up to its floriferous reputation.

Very nice. However, Aloe jucunda is fromSomalia, not Madagascar :wink:
Especially interested in Mesembs. small Aloes and South African miniatures and bulbs.
