We are taking a break from the heat.  We will resume shipping plants starting in September.  Feel free to pre-order plants for your fall garden.  First come, first served.

Aloe arborescens (Aloe arborescens) Quart-size plant, organic

$20.00$50.00

Note: These are 3-year-old plants from seed, currently in quart-size pots, very similar to the first photo in the gallery (resting on slotted table), will be depotted to ship.

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 may be depotted and wrapped to avoid damage in shipment

    I got my plant and potted it as you suggested. I love it! I’m not sure how often to water. I read the instructions and it said dry to mesic soil and can tolerate wet feet at certain temperatures. About how often is that? Once every few days? Once a week? I will be keeping it indoors by a sunny window, in a large pot (picture attached) with a drainage hole in the bottom. Thank you 🙂

      Hi Casey,
      Aloe arborescens will take more water than most aloes. Water deeply, and allow surface to completely dry before watering again. In the indoor setting you have there, you might end up watering once a week. Thank you for taking such good care of this plant, may it pup out, flourish and flower.

      Hello Marijana,
      Yes, it is Aloe arborescens. Plants come in families just like people, but taxonomists keep[ changing the family names, it is no reason to be concerned.

      Best approach is to mix 50% cactus mix with 50% standard potting soil.
