Aloe Marmalade plant in bloom

Aloe marmalade with a bloom twice its size

A big, blustery Pacific storm just blew through here leaving everything cold, gray and wet… except for this orange marmalade aloe (aka: “Aloe marmalade”).

Not only are the leaves dayglow orange, but the foot tall flower it kicked out is a crazy bright fuchsia.

Against the post-storm cloudy skies, it’s practically a beacon.
