Aloe Vera, is a perennial succulent plant famous for it's attractive thick, fleshy foliage and healing powers! The thick clear gel obtained from the cactus-like aloe leaves is used in traditional medicine throughout the world. Aloe has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It is known to treat burns, ulcerative colitis, cold sores, diabetes, inflammation, psoriasis, dry skin, and many more medical conditions.

Growing Aloe is super easy.  Plant Aloe in full sun or partial shade in a well-drained soil. Once established, it will be extremely drought tolerant.  Aloe blooms red and orange flowers in the warm months of the year and is very attractive to hummingbirds and insect pollinators. Aloe is fast growing and spreads through new plants at it's base, called pups, making it an excellent ornamental and useful groundcover.
