Mountain aloe is a tall tree plant, easily reaching 2 meters in height and up to 4 meters in its native range.
It is a species with very large, succulent leaves covered with small spines on the edges and above the leaf.
Flowering occurs at the end of winter or at the beginning of spring and produces a floral stalk covered with flowers in yellow, orange or red hues. Flowering lasts between 8 and 10 weeks.
Easy to grow, the plant requires a sunny position with maximum heat. In cooler regions, it is interesting to install it along a stone wall to take advantage of the refraction of heat during the day but especially at night.
In its area of origin, this resistant aloe easily reaches the venerable age of 200 years.
