Aloe Echidna


Aloe Echidna is a new breed of Aloe that resembles the Australian Echidna. Echidna flowers in winter (June – July in Brisbane weather) with cream and red inflorescence that is very attractive to bees (and humans). The inflorescence begins late May and develops through to July when it is in full bloom.  Like all aloes it requires very well draining soil and to be kept in morning sun/afternoon shade to avoid over exposure to the sun which, results in the tips of the leaves burning. The flowers begin as a deep apricot colour when young and slowly deepening to a deep red with yellow/cream/green on the lower petals.
