About the use of colour red...

 The colour red is often quite problematic in gardens, but a fierce explosion like this aloe booms makes it worth to try. Here are two examples from the Pinya da Rosa botanical garden in Blanes, Spain.

  1. Beautiful! You seem to travel a lot, lucky :). I like looking at aloe, but it is too big and coarse for my small garden... Thank you for these lovely pictures.
