Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips

An extremely attractive Aloe with, as its name suggests, succulent, spiny leaves. A great selection for containers, 'Hedgehog' is an upright, stemless variety with spikes of coral-red flowers in summer. The perfect plant for hot, dry locations, 'Hedgehog' makes quite an impression in the front border or as a container specimen. If it isn't cold hardy in your region, bring indoors for months of enjoyment near a sunny window.
