Aloe ramosissima


Aloe ramosissima

Maiden’s Quiver Tree

Highlight Month:


South Africa, Namibia

Growth Habit:

Single trunk producing many slender dichotomously-branched divisions.

Growing Requirements:

Aloe ramosissima is native to very dry habitats, where years may pass between rain events, and requires excellent drainage to thrive in wet winter areas such as Santa Barbara.


The clear yellow tubular flowers occur in dense inflorescences in late fall. Most aloes have orange to reddish flowers, so these are particularly striking.

Where at Lotusland:

In the aloe garden near the shell pond.
