Thanks! Happy New Year to you, also!

Sure you can have some of the blue sky and very warm temps. Today it's going to be around 85ºF/29ºC. in inland San Diego. It's incredible!

This is one of my favorite flowering tall Aloe species. Of course, Aloe barberae (syn. Aloe bainesii) is the tallest growing species here. It can grow to more than 50ft/16m tall.

Thanks! Yes, some species of Aloe grow very, very tall.
