A Gift of Aloe – Aloe Humili ‘Andhogp’ Spineless Hedgehog

Garden — By on May 27, 2013 6:37 am

Aloe Humili 'Andhogp' Spineless Hedgehog

Every year at the beginning of the season I try to find a unique little plant gift I can give visitors that come to visit my garden. Sometimes I give them my book, sometimes I dig up and split perennials, and last season I planted Aloe  plants in little clay pots and lined my front sidewalk with them.

These adorable little Aloe Humili ‘Andhogp’ Spineless Hedgehog’s are from Plants Nouveau and turned out to be the perfect gift. These little babies grow up into gorgeous plants. The photo below shows them in their current development over winter. I will replant them again in the spring in hopes that we shall see flowers develop like in the plants shown in the very bottom photo.

Aloe Humili ‘Andhogp’ Spineless Hedgehog’s is an upright, urn-shaped Aloe; ‘Hedgehog’ blooms with spikes of coral-red flowers in spring and again in late summer. The perfect plant for hot, dry locations, this attractive succulent makes quite an impression in the front border or as a container specimen, blooming for months.

What type of gifts to you give visitors to your garden? Leave a note on the comments below and let me know what you share when people come to visit.

Special Note – Because the FTC requires it, I am telling you that Plants Nouveau, Organic Mechanics Soil,  and Natural Industries supplied the plants, soil, and soil additives I used for this little garden gift. I have used their products because I WOULD even if they had not given the products to me. The flowering photo at the bottom of the page is credited to Plants Nouveau’s website (thank you PN). You do know that my opinions are my own, right?

    I have a vision that one day I will have a wonderful garden to wander in but not a lot of visitors yet. I’m always ready with extra gloves and shovels to share. Maybe that’s why I don’t get a lot of visitors. Thanks for sharing your garden!

  2. I have one of these from you! It’s doing very well, too! I love it!

    I’m drooling over your garden!! Unfortunately, I have clay type soil, very shady. I have no clue what to plant – everything I’ve tried dies! So no visitors for me.

    Shawna,I read article on you in Today’s Sunday magazine of Chicago Tribune.
    I loved what you said in it.I am gardening for last two years and loving it ,it isn’t times challenging but rewarding .
    I liked your idea of sharing plants with visitors,Recently I planted some annuals and gifted my friend .To me it is a very personal gift,provided that person at least likes if not loves plants.

  5. Hey would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using?

    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers
    and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Thanks, I appreciate it!

  6. The Google algorithm changes hundreds of times each year, so it
    is impossible to promise an organic rank that will last more
    than a short period of time. Why we should waste our fuel
    in vehicles while going for shopping and we also don’t prefer
    to go outside without our vehicle. Website promotion by organic SEO is a long and hard
    work process.

    –If you’re too sore, stop for a while to avoid injury–Try to excercise early to get it out of the way and so you
    don’t have to worry about it later. As a person gets older more and more
    fats gets accumulated in their body. If you purchase for it now, it will surely
    be available 30 or 40 years later. There’s a big list
    of food items that might help you burn the actual undesired fatty
    acids in your body. Perseverance is key, so choose a few
    activities you enjoy, as well as cycle through all of them every week.
