Aloe x principis

There are more than 300 species of Aloe, plus many hybrids, ranging in height from 6 inches to 18 feet. Native to arid lands, they require little water or care. Juice from the thick, pointed, sharply toothed leaves of some species is used in medicines. However, all Alow leaves are toxic if eaten, so grow plants away from children. The green or lightly blotched leaves usually grow in compact rosettes or occasionally in spirals. Their lilylike flowers bloom atop tall spikes. Some types bloom every month. Drought-tolerant, they prefer frost-free climates and dislike wet winters. Easy to care for, as long as they get good drainage and enough sun. Remove flower stalks and old leaves after flowering.
Aloe x principis
Over time, this large-growing hybrid of Aloe arborescens and Aloe ferox forms impressive clumps of spiny rosettes. Drooping dead leaves cloak the stems.
