The Coral Aloe, scientifically known as Aloe striata, is a visually striking succulent known for its smooth, flat, broad leaves and vibrant floral display. This South African native typically grows to about 1 to 2 feet in height and spreads 2 to 3 feet, forming neat rosettes.

The leaves of Aloe striata are a notable feature - they are a blue-green to gray-green color, usually lacking the characteristic spines found along the edges of many other aloe species, giving them a smooth appearance. The leaf margins often have a pinkish to reddish hue, especially when grown in full sun or under slight stress conditions.

Coral Aloe thrives in full sun to light shade and is adaptable to a variety of soil types, provided they have good drainage. It's a great choice for xeriscaping, rock gardens, and succulent gardens, and its moderate size makes it suitable for container planting as well.

One of the most striking aspects of Aloe striata is its flowering. It produces tall spikes of tubular, coral-red to orange flowers, usually in late winter to early spring. These blooms not only add a burst of color to the garden but also attract pollinators like bees and hummingbirds.

Aloe striata is a low-maintenance plant, requiring minimal watering once established, making it a popular choice for gardeners seeking drought-tolerant landscaping options. Its sculptural form and showy blooms make Coral Aloe a standout in any succulent collection or garden setting, adding both aesthetic appeal and ecological value.
