Description

This is a beautiful evergreen succulent perennial which forms beautiful clusters of rosettes of flat broad, pale grey-green leaves, featuring striped markings (‘striata’ being the Latin word for striped). Leaf margins are toothless and transparent, while leaf colour varies according to sunlight—in full sun foliage turns pinkish and bluish-green in shady spots. In bloom, it features clusters of brilliant coral-red flowers rising 60 cm above the foliage on tall candelabra-like stems. Growing around 45cm tall and 60cm wide, it is relatively slow growing but easy to grow.

Plant in full sun to light shade in well-drained soil and water regularly but minimally. Never allow it to sit in water, nor water to sit in the rosettes, as this will cause rot. Native to South Africa, this plant is sometimes confused with a garden hybrid, aloe striata x, which has teeth along the leaf margins. This makes a stunning plant in dry beds and borders, but is also perfect for succulent gardens or rockeries.

Due to quarantine laws Ezy Care Succulents can only post to QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and ACT. We are currently seeking approval to post to WA, TAS and NT, so please join our facebook group to receive updates of when we can ship to you.

PACKING

All plants are removed from their pots and all soil cleaned away as this is the safest and cleanest way of shipping. Succulents are extremely hardy, and this will not harm your plants but will just appear "dry and thirsty". Easy instructions on how to repot and care for your succulents are included with every order.

By preparing your plants with bare roots helps comply with quarantine regulations and also minimises shipping costs to our customers, making Ezy Care Succulents a very cost-effective way of purchasing your plants.

All orders are packaged with environmentally friendly recycled paper to ensure safe freight and reduce damage to the plant.

GENERAL INFOMRATION

Only the healthiest, top quality plants are selected from the Ezy Care Succulents nursery for your order. The size, colour, and shape of your shipment may vary according to the season, or when shipping to colder areas. All succulents are slightly dried prior to packaging and may look different to the photo. Preparation instructions are included in every order which are specific to the plants that you have ordered, and usually only take a few days to recover.

Even though many of our succulents are known for their agricultural and medicinal uses, all the plants at the Ezy Care Succulents nursery are propagated for ornamental purposes only. Please ensure that you have conducted your own thorough research if you intend on consuming these plants, as we recommend against human consumption.
