About Safari Sunrise Aloe

The Safari Sunrise Aloe from the Southern Living Plants is the blooming aloe you never knew you needed! It produces incredibly showy bloom spikes dually toned in pink-orange and cream white. Additionally, it has an impressive bloom period that lasts from early summer and through winter! Therefore, it’s one of the most prolific bloomers around.

The Safari Sunrise Aloe also features the classic aloe foliage everyone knows and loves! Soft teeth line the edges of its thick evergreen foliage straps. In addition, this foliage is an attractive green with blue-grey hues mixed in.

The Safari Sunrise Aloe is a fast-grower with a clumping habit, and maxes out at 3′ H x 3.5′ W. Once well established in your landscape, this easy care variety won’t require much maintenance or attention.

Gardeners in dry areas will appreciate the Safari Sunrise Aloe! It’s notably water-wise and drought tolerant. So it works phenomenally in Xeriscape gardens.

The Safari Sunrise Aloe is ideal for Southern gardens due to its heat tolerance.

Use it in rock gardens, mass plantings, or as a ground cover. Alternatively, plant the Safari Sunrise Aloe in a container. This has the added benefit of retaining mobility for it if you have to move the plant indoors in order to protect it from hard freezes.

Try it with a couple of other popular Xeriscaping Southern Living varieties, the Orange Rocket Barberry and Color Guard Yucca. Also, take a look at its sibling, the Safari Rose Aloe.

Safari Sunrise Aloe Care

Hardy from USDA Zones 9-11. However, there is a simple solution for gardeners in Zones 8 and below: Plant the Safari Sunrise Aloe in a pot and bring it indoors for the winter. Put it in a sunny window and return it outside once the threat of frost passes in spring.

Plant in Full Sun to Partial Shade for best results.

The Safari Sunrise Aloe grows best in sandy soil with fast drainage. Poor drainage often results in root rot.

Water 1-2 times per week during the first growing season if planted in the ground. If planted in a container, water 2-3 times per week.

Aloe plants rarely need fertilizer to thrive. However, apply a liquid houseplant fertilizer in spring to ensure that it has all of the minerals and nutrients it needs to thrive.

Safari Sunrise Aloe Spacing Recommendations

Plant your Safari Sunrise Aloe about 2 feet apart for a seamless planting. Otherwise, plant them 4+ feet apart for space between clumps.

    Arrived looking great and oddly enough these seem to be doing better than the Safari Rose I also got and planted here in Las Vegas. Am thinking about getting a few more once the summer heat hits. I’d like to see how these hold up to 110 degree days in partial afternoon shade.
