Aloe arborescens, Torch Aloe, Krantz Aloe

Large densely growing succulent to 9 feet tall by an equal spread with many wide rosettes of narrow recurved soft-toothed margined leaves. Good in pots as a houseplant.

Leaves are fleshy, varying from deep green through lime green, and in full sun, eventually turning a red-brown shade.

Aloe arborescens will tolerate a wide range of growing conditions, but prefers sandy or at least very well-drained soils. The amount of sunlight strictly necessary is considered to be bright shade, but the plant does equally well in full sun. Placement in gardens often depends on the gardener’s preference of leaf colour – full sun produces more of the “red” leaf colouration, especially on older growth, while partial to bright shade maintains the green tones.

Coral-red flowers hang tightly on the unbranched inflorescences that rise 2 feet above the foliage in late fall and early winter. Plant in full sun (coast) to light shade.

It is one of the strongest medicinal aloes. It is considered the first treatment for any type of scratch, bite, or burn, and is used in hospitals as a primary treatment for burns up to the third degree.
