About

Aloe barberae is a tree Aloe and in its native environment it can grow upto 18m high, however nothing like this in our cool climate. It forms a woody trunk that branches as it gains height and is greyish brown and rough to touch. The leaves recurve, are dark green and deeply channelled. The flowers range from salmon pink to orange. An amazing architectural Aloe that does need to be kept frost free in the winter.
