Aloiampelos ciliaris var. ciliaris

Previously known as Aloe ciliaris but now moved to the genus Aloiampelos. This is a hardy, climbing Aloe with stems climbing up to 5m if they are supported, but otherwise makes a lovely, clump forming sprawling shrub.
The leaves are in loose rosettes around the stem and fringed with white hairs. It blooms almost all year round with beautiful, bright red flowers that are tipped with yellow.
The flowers attract sunbirds to the garden. Grows in sun or light shade where it tolerates the dry conditions under trees.
It is indigenous to the Eastern Cape but grows well on Leisure Isle especially in the long grass west of the tennis courts.
