Minibelle aloe is a dwarf variety that shows off light green leaves speckled in white. It grows 10 inches tall and 16 inches wide.
While you might be tempted to think that the Minnie Belle aloe (also spelled Minibelle) is small, its name has nothing to do with its size. It’s actually named for the wife of Ed Hummel, who himself is named for another aloe plant from which this one is derived. In terms of height, it usually tops out at around 6 inches (15 cm.). Its leaves are relatively short and spiky. They are bright green with white spots and translucent white spikes, or teeth, along their edges. In late spring and summer, the plant produces bright to deep red bell-shaped flowers that are very attractive to hummingbirds.
