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?
