Aloe striatula is possibly the hardiest of the aloes and is often very free-flowering. I have never noticed any winter damage on any of the plants regardless of where they were growing. It is a multi-stemmed rambling shrub which eventually covers several square metres. We have many of these plants in various parts of the garden but our most impressive specimen is growing beneath the clump of three eucalyptus trees in the 'dry woodland' area. Aloe striatula, as is the case with all aloes, can be be strongly attacked by slugs which generally prefer the flowers to foliage. Whole flower spikes can be polished off in no time at all.
