Hardy to Zone 9 to 12, but normally grown as a potted plant indoors or on the summer patio
(Soap Aloe, Zebra Aloe) Fat succulent widely distributed throughout South Africa. Variable. This plant has the distinction of not needing a well-drained soil–It will even grow in muck. Small to medium-sized, the flat, stubby leaves are covered with h-shaped spots. Eventually, the plant will make a short trunk, giving rise to branched stalked topped by outsized pom-poms of orange or red. The seeds are purportedly poisonous. Locals use the sap as soap.
