The flowers on the Bottlebrush Aloe are extremely decorative with yellow buds opening slowly in late winter to reveal striking orange stamens that 'glow' and resemble a bottlebrush.
These amazing flowers tower above the statuesque 2.5m plus tree. It has a dominant single trunk and one or more terminal rosettes of large chunky sword-shaped green leaves.
Looks great mass planted or as a feature plant in large containers or pots.
