Aloe Oik Hybrid

3 Reviews

The brilliantly bumpy Aloe 'Oik' is a dwarf aloe hybrid with fairly short, triangular, bluish to greenish leaves. They are covered with irregular, broad, often multi-pointed pinkish teeth on the margins while the surface teeth are conical or merged to form raised dashes. The word “oik," in its mildest connotation, is British slang for a rambunctious child. Reddish highlights develop when Aloe 'Oik' is given plenty of sun. Great in its own decorative container or in a dish garden with other succulents.
