Aloe arborescens (Aloe arborescens) plant, gallon size, organic

$60.00

Family: Aloe (Asphodelaceae)

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

(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.  Space plants 2 to 3 feet apart–they soar!

Organically Certified Potted Plant in a gallon pot, our largest size, will be depotted and wrapped to avoid damage in shipment

  1. Question

    Crissy

    How big of a pot should this go into in another 3 or so years? If it is in a gallon pot today what is the ideal size pot it should be in down the line. Want to be sure it will still fit indoors in a few years. I only have one area that will receive enough light for an indoor plant.

      Hi Crissy,
      Aloes relish root constriction so can be kept in the gallon pot for a couple more years. My largest A arborescens are in 3 gallon pots. Even if not uppotting to a larger size, still, they should be repotted yearly to be happy.
