It’s that time of year again to catch the displays of these spectacular South African succulents in bloom around town.
These photos were taken mid-day at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden 2/7/13.
Many were of hybrid origin, no name given.
En masse, the hot-blooded, scorched-earth effect of an aloe in bloom gets seriously ramped up.
Another good bet to see a glorious display is at the Huntington Botanical Gardens.
Great pics. The Aloe garden is one of my favorite parts of the Los Angeles Arboretum.
Im honestly drooling over these photos! amazing!
Kaveh, I always head to the Huntington for the aloes, so was amazed to see such a display.
Louis, I wish the light was better. Twilight photos would increase the drool factor quite a bit.
I’d love to be there at the right time to see the aloes. One day! It’s on my must-see list.
Nice pics! Thanks for sharing. I’m dying for those large aloes! I’m a temp transplant to florida and cant find the large varieties, suprisingly! Only the vera….
The shots were magnificent!
