Aloe ramosissima

Maiden’s Quiver Tree

Highlight Month:


Nativity:

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.

Features:

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.
