Botanical Name:Aloe barbadensis
A clump forming perennial up to 100cm tall. The thick fleshy leaves have serrated edges. The tubular yellow flowers appear in summer and the plant suckers at the base.
The inner gel can be used to relieve constipation, poor appetite, digestive problems and irritable bowel syndrome. Externally it is used to heal burns, wounds, insect bites, eczema and other skin problems. The gel can also be used to soften and moisturise the skin.
Caution taking the gel internally as close to the leaf skin there is a bitter substance known as bitter aloes, that can cause painful cramping diarrhoea.
Although they will withstand dry periods, they prefer good soil and regular watering, ensure they have very good drainage in a sunny to part sun position. Remove the suckers/pups to ensure a large mother plant.
