Description: Cape Aloe is a perennial succulent plant that is native to the Cape Region of South Africa which grows to a height of up to 3 metres. It grows from a basal-rosette of leaves and has a single branching stem; the leaves are thick and fleshy, linear-lanceolate with serrated spines along the leaf edge, greyish green in colour and up to 1 metre in length. The inflorescences appear on each of the stem branches and are comprised of upright, cylindrical, tapering racemes consisting of whorls of 4-petaled flowers which are approximately 3cm in length, yellowy-orange to reddish-orange in colour with dark orange stamens. Our aloes powder is comprised of the thickened dried juice of the leaves of some species of Aloe, especially those of Aloe ferox and hybrids.
