Aloe species

Botanical Name: Aloe species

Common Name(s): Aloe

Categories: ,

Description:

The Aloe genus is restricted to Africa and Madagascar, and many species are indigenous to South Africa. Aloes occur in a wide range of climates, so the variance in the species is huge, from tree-like aloes, such as A. barbarae, to the clump forming A. arborescens, rosette forming A. maculata and tiny A. parvula. Flower colours range from white to shades of yellow, orange, red and pink. Most aloes are drought tolerant, making them a good choice for waterwise gardens. Aloes produce copious amounts of pollen and nectar, attracting birds and insects when they are in flower. Many aloe hybrids have been cultivated to suit garden conditions.
