The Candelabra is a South African native, growing from sea level up to the top of rocky mountains. It flowers with amazing bright red, tall blooms in its natural habitat and can withstand anything from bright sunshine to moderate frost, so perfect for inside and out. Don’t overwater, and it will be happy wherever you put it! This unusual Aloe is typically found is dry habitats and looks pretty amazing due to its unusual shape.
It is one of 130 species of Aloe in the world, but it is one of the most familiar. The Latin 'arborescens' means tree-like and that is the style of growing like a many-branched shrub. It has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries – It was even mentioned in ancient Egyptian papyrus scrolls.
