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.

Tips: This succulent requires well-draining soil and full sun. It can tolerate a bit of shade, but DRAINAGE is vital to its well-being.

Great plant January 25, 2019
Reviewer: Osvaldo Rojas from Orlando, FL United States  
The plant was bigger than I expected, which is great. Transplanted it two days after it arrived and it is thriving.

An old favorite November 24, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Little Rock, AR United States  
This arrived on the coldest day of the season and had a few bumps on the way. Two leaves were broken off, but no one would ever know now.  It's thriving in a new clay pot with fresh organic soil, growing like a weed, big and beautiful.
