Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera)


Aloe Barbadensis is the one true Aloe Vera (actually referred to as the true medicinal Aloe). Aloe Vera can grow up to 1m tall with serrated edges baring small white teeth. It is a stunning structural plant that spreads via offsets. Barbadensis is a spring  flowering succulent and is highly attractive to native birds and bees, the local noisy miner birds in my area absolutely love mine, visiting the plant daily for it’s nectar. The flowers are bright yellow and the one plant can bare several flower stalks that bloom one by one, this is very useful to the native birds and bees as there is fresh nectar on a daily basis.

If you are looking for a hardy succulent plant that is not only beautiful, feeds native birds and bees but is also the one true ‘Aloe Vera’ this is certainly one to add to your ‘wish list.’ Aloe Vera has been used for centuries to cure heartburn and even to slow cancer from spreading, this is a truely special species!
