Tree Aloes – Aloe Thraskii

Aloe is an enormous genus containing well over 500 different species and it can be quiet overwhelming, but the beauty of this large genus, native to Africa, is that it is so vast. There are endless applications for aloes and one of the toughest things to do in a succulent garden is add height. That is where the different tree aloes can really make a difference. They add another level to a design, turning a two dimensional landscape into 3D. The Aloe Thraskii, or “Coast Aloe”,  is an un-branching tree aloe that can grow up to 10’ tall. The Coast Aloe has beautiful winter flowers of orange and yellow with up to 20 individual stems. We also offer a number of different tree aloes, Vaombe, Bainseii, Dichotoma, Hercules, and Marlothii are just a few. Keep in mind how you’ll be adding height to your next succulent garden.
