The Krantz Aloe makes an excellent focal point in a garden with its sculptural leaf form. The succulent leaves are blue-grey with a toothed margin. The attractive spikes of red, yellow or orange tubular flowers provide striking colour to a winter garden.
This is a wonderful shrub to use in a larger garden as it attracts birds, particularly sunbirds in winter. It also forms a protective screen so can be used to naturally secure property boundaries.ECOLOGICAL BENEFITS:
The flowers produce abundant nectar that attracts pollinating insects and birds.
The dead, dried leaves provide a home to many insects which in turn, attract insectivorous birds such as woodhoopoes.
Low maintenance. It is a plant that can tolerate a fair amount of neglect.
