Aloe Vera Plants

Aloe Barbadensis

This ancient herb has been used throughout the centuries for its medicinal and cosmetic properties ~ it is said that it was an important part of Cleopatra's beauty regime.

Aloe Vera is a stemless based, clump forming succulent that produces a rosette of thick, fleshy leaves with gray spots. It is easy to grow, but requires GOOD DRAINING soil and sun. This is a drought tolerant herb that is perfect for hot and dry areas. Although it is not hardy in zones below 9, it can be grown indoors easily.

As an ornamental plant in the landscape, Aloe Vera's fleshy, spiky leaves gives this plant an unusual as well as attractive appearance. Plant alone, or in groups ~ it looks great against a wall or fence.

The succulent leaves are filled with juice and gel, and both are valued for their medicinal properties. Who hasn't used a cut leave to relieve the burning and itching of either sunburn or a bug bite. The juice, although bitter, has been used as a laxative and is said to help regulate hypertension.

An EASY TO GROW plant, this low maintenance houseplant is a succulent that needs little attention. It can tolerate drought and less than perfect soil.

Good-sized, healthy plant June 18, 2019
Reviewer: Michelle Hale from Evansville, IN United States  
I’ve only had my aloe plant for a week.  Put it in a pretty pot and it’s very happy.  I think it’s already growing!

Reviewer: Beverly Powers from Poughkeepsie , NY United States  
The first set came with a few broken leaves. The customer service of this company is amazing. They replaced the plants quickly. They are beautiful and doing well so far.

The plant was bigger than I expected, which is great. Transplanted it two days after it arrived and it is thriving.
