|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.
Distinctive white teeth edge the arching, grayish-green to green leaves, sometimes spotted with white. Flower stalks rise to 3 feet, bearing clusters of green-tipped red blossoms. Can not handle frost.
