The Coast or Dune Aloe, scientifically known as Aloe thraskii, is a distinctive succulent native to coastal dunes in South Africa. It typically grows to about 2 to 3 feet in height and spreads 2 to 4 feet, forming a large, upright rosette of leaves.

Aloe thraskii is characterized by its long, arching leaves, which are a vibrant green color and have a slightly rough texture. The leaf edges are lined with small teeth, but these are not as pronounced as in some other aloe species, giving the plant a softer appearance. Its upright growth habit and slightly drooping leaves distinguish it from many other aloes, lending it a unique visual appeal.

This aloe is well-adapted to coastal conditions, thriving in sandy soils and tolerating salt spray, making it an ideal choice for seaside gardens. It's also suitable for rock gardens, succulent gardens, and as a striking container plant.

Aloe thraskii prefers full sun to light shade and requires well-drained soil. It's drought-tolerant once established, making it a low-maintenance option for water-wise gardening.

The flowering of Coast Aloe is quite spectacular. It produces tall spikes of bright red to orange flowers, typically in the winter. These vibrant blooms not only add a splash of color to the landscape but also attract pollinators such as bees and birds.

Overall, Aloe thraskii is valued for its unique form, adaptability to coastal environments, and striking floral display. Its robust size and architectural leaves make it a standout addition to a variety of garden styles, particularly those with a focus on drought tolerance and naturalistic design.
