During September I want to see your favourite flowers.
(This month I’m looking at flower portraits – showcase a flower that you are particularly fond of or one that is unusual)
Spiral Aloe (Aloe polyphylla) is a species in the genus Aloe that is endemic to the Kingdom of Lesotho in the Drakensberg mountains. It is well known for its strikingly symmetrical, five-pointed spiral growth habit. Wikipedia
I am very fond of succulents and by moving to Cornwall where frost and extreme cold is rare (crosses fingers) I hope to grow some of these architectural plants in my garden.
