Trade name: Ivory Dawn™
Botanical name: Aloe Hybrid 'LEO 4744'
Description: One of the true ‘repeaters’- instead of a flush of colour for a relatively short period of time, this sun perennial will spread its bicoloured (reddish pink-to-ivory) coloured flowers over twelve months with a mature plant having up to 5 separate flushes of flowers. Great for birds as a large group planting is unlikely to ever be without flowers. The plant is stemless and forms a rosette of nicely shaped, smooth green leaves.
