Fields of Coral Aloe

Just as the "normal" Aloes in the Karoo Heartland is done flowering, it's the turn of the Coral Aloes.  A drive through the southern Karoo Heartland (on the N10 just over the Olifantskop Pass from Port Elizabeth) in the Eastern Cape two weeks ago had me stop a couple of times and grabbing for my camera with literally fields of flowering Coral Aloe stretching away from the road.

Just more proof that the Eastern Cape doesn't have to stand back one step when it comes to showing off it's beautiful flowers in spring.

  2. That is spectacular. Beautiful leaves too. I have a very lonely plant in my garden.
