There may be no live succulent plant as storied as Aloe vera, revered through the ages for its health, beauty, medicinal and skin care uses (even Cleopatra was said to be a fan — yes, that Cleopatra). With its thick, fleshy, lance-shaped leaves, Aloe vera is a striking, tropical-style, drought-tolerant houseplant or garden plant that adds life to your home and garden decor. This succulent arrives fully rooted in a 1-gallon container. When the weather warms up, you can place this versatile succulent on your patio or porch.
If you dwell in a place where frost is not a concern, Aloe vera can live and thrive outside year-round. It’s always a treat to see (or hear) hummingbirds make a beeline for the yummy yellow flowers on tall spikes. When not treating hummingbirds, Aloe vera can be used to soothe minor cuts, scrapes, and sunburns. To use, cut outer skin away from a leaf and rub sap onto affected areas.
Thanks to its ability to store water, this pure aloe plant can go longer between waterings than many other plants, especially traditional houseplants. Displays well indoor or outdoor with air plants, a snake plant, a bamboo plant, a jade plant, a kalanchoe plant, a crown of thorns plant, purslane, and other live outdoor plants & flowers. Along with tolerating drought, this architecturally compelling succulent thrives with little care. While feeding is not essential, you can give your Aloe vera a boost by feeding in spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength.
