If you're looking to add some energy into your garden, we've got a new plant on our radar that's straight fire. Aloe cameronii, sometimes called red aloe, is a type of succulent native to Africa characterized by its vibrant foliage, according to Gardenia.
The curled leaves of Aloe cameronii can range in color from green to a bright, coppery red. Unlike other succulents, these bad boys are outdoors only, as they typically grow between one to two feet high and two to four feet wide. Fortunately, they're an evergreen plant and require very little maintenance or water. Gardenia recommends growing them in sandy or gravely, well-drained soil in either full sun or light shade. These plants grow well in warmer temperatures. Their ideal range is 9 to 12 based off the USDA's Plant Hardiness Zone Map.
