  • Uses:  
    This aloe has a looser growth habit than many upright aloes. Nice in cactus, succulent and rock gardens and trailing over the tops of walls. Could be used mixed with other succulents in a hanging basket. Flower structure and color are somewhat unique among aloes and flowers occur over a long period. Good with contrasting dark foliage plants or even as a loose taller ground cover.
  • Propagation:  
    Replant offsets and collect seeds after flowering
  • Special notes:  
    This Aloe is similar to Aloe arborescens in form but not as upright in habit. It is a branching shrubby plant with many 2-4 feet long stems composed of individual rosettes, each about one foot in diameter. Its leaf margins have triangular shaped teeth. It flowers from all year round with interesting branched conical yellow flowers tipped in green. It is listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List. Its leaves contain poisonous compounds.
