Aloe ‘White Fox’

Description

The Aloe 'White Fox’ is incredibly similar to it’s popular cousin, with the main differences being it’s growth and coloring. Grown more for decoration than for treating kitchen burns, the ‘White Fox’ has beautiful white markings and stays compact as it grows. It’s leaves are a bit more rigid than the original, but they’re filled with the same gel substance known for it’s skincare benefits!

Available in 4-Inch nursery pot
