Sparoza - Aloe Bed

The photograph at the top of this page shows the Aloe Bed in April (Photo Lucinda Willan)

The Aloe Bed runs down the edge of the Phrygana on the eastern boundary of the garden and is either one of the most understated or dramatic areas of the garden depending on the season. A river of Aloe maculata is interspersed with Ptilostemon chamaepeuce and Cercis siliquastrum. The aloes form a low carpet of greeny-purple stars which is transformed into a blaze of fire in April and May when the bright-orange waist-height inflorescences appear.
