Fan Aloe

The Fan Aloe, or Aloe Plicatilis, is an extremely branching, highly variable, and thus exceedingly unique plant. Growing as a multi branched shrub, or even a small tree, with specimens reaching 10’-15’ tall! Each stem has its own cluster of individual leaves that run linear to the next, resembling a fan. The leaves are of a green, almost blue color, with smooth edges. When flowering through the winter months each cluster of leaves shoots up its own flower spike. The more branches the specimen has, the more flowers it produces.
