Medicinal aloe is a clump forming succulent whose fleshy gray-green leaves are arranged in a vase shaped rosette atop a very short stem. The leaves are up to 18 in (45.7 cm) long and 2 in (5.1 cm) wide at the base, slightly grooved on top, and terminating in a sharp point. The leaves have small grayish teeth on the margins. The main rosette gets up to about 2 ft (0.6 m) high, and the plant continually produces little offset rosettes. In winter and spring, medicinal aloe bears small tubular yellow flowers on branched stalks up to 3 ft (0.9 cm) tall. Culture Medicinal aloe is easy to grow in sandy or gravelly, well-drained soil. Light Full sun to partial shade. Moisture Drought tolerant. Hardiness USDA Zones 8 - 11. Propagation Propagate medicinal aloe by separating the offset "pups."
