Aloe arborescens (Aloe arborescens) packet of 20 seeds

(2 customer reviews)


Please note:  As of late February 2019 I have enabled the last few packets remaining.  We will not have Aloe arborescens seeds again until January 2020.  I recommend our Aloe arborescens plants which remain in stock.

Family: Aloe (Asphodelaceae)

Hardiness: Zone 8 to 10, withstands light frost, often grown as a potted plant indoors or on the summer patio.

(Aloe arborescens, Krantz Aloe) Perennial succulent native to South Africa.  Growing up to 8 feet tall, the plant flowers coral-red in the fall and/or winter.  Plants produce one or more upright stalks with the showy rosettes perched on top, leaves rimmed by large, soft and harmless spines, filled with gel.  Aloe arborescens is an excellent choice for potted culture anywhere, or outdoors culture in maritime California, desert areas and the South.  When left in potted culture, keep indoors in a bright window, in the shady greenhouse or on the porch in the summer, then bring in for the winter.  Drought tolerant, but also, among the Aloes we’ve grown, more tolerant of cold and “wet feet” than most.  “Krantz” is the Afrikaner word meaning “cliff” or “rocky ledge,” referring to the natural habitat. Plant prefers dry to mesic soil and full sun to part shade.

    All seeds germinated within a couple weeks

    They grew slowly at an indoor window this fall/wintet. Some were staying 1/2″ tall others were 3″. Now with more daylight and warming temps they starting to grow faster. Being in zone 7b- 8 I plan to keep them in pots and bring inside for the coldest months.
