Aloe greatheadii var. davyana is a beautiful grassland species ideally suited to a cold highveld garden. The plants flower in winter and light up the veld with their colourful displays. For the rest of the year the plants are nondescript and often hidden from view amongst our indigenous veld grasses. The species has a narrow form with spiny, spotted leaves which form a rosette at the base. The flower spikes however are tall and can reach up to 1.5 meters in height, giving this species a superb architectural effect. Sunbirds and bees are attracted to the flowers in winter, so along with it’s narrow form it makes a hardy and versatile species to add to a garden.
