One of the largest Aloes the beautiful & distinctive “Aloe Tree” is well known & a common garden feature in South Africa. Usually growing up to 12’ or 15’ tall it forms a single trunk branching out into a densely rounded crown at maturity displaying terminal rosettes of blue-green leaves.  Bright yellow flower spikes appear December & January. It loves intense heat & fast drainage. Excellent in a hot dry rock garden & superb in a large container. Fire-retardant!
