Snake Head Aloes


Aloe bloom stalks look like snake heads.

Aloe thraskii – This first one is after the buds have already started popping out of the stalk, but haven’t opened yet to release their sweet sweet nectar to the hummingbirds. We’ve had some of these bloom orange, but always they’re deeply striped.

Aloe arborescens is open throughout Berkeley, but this one is a bit behind the curve. Very snake head like, and yet you can see the buds at the bottom of the bloom spike starting to peek out.

Aloe speciosa is a snake head supreme. Still weeks away from blooming. Fortunately the hummingbirds have the Aloe ferox to feed off of right now.
