Meet aloe arborescens, our plant of the month

Often called the "candelabra aloe”, Aloe Arborescens can grow up to 10 feet tall and become as big as a small tree! Vibrant red-orange cylindrical flowers rise high from the plant’s leaves to give it a distinctive look.                             

It’s looks like a hot desert cacti, so funky, and even more amazing you can eat it, and look what it does…
