Evergreen, succulent perennial famous for its medicinal properties. Its natural habitat is sandy or rocky terrain but has naturalised in many Southern European countries.
Rosettes of thick, fleshy, succulent, strap-shaped leaves with soft teeth along the margins. Produces racemes of yellow, tubular flowers on long stems.
Aloe vera is an excellent treatment for burns and grazes. Simply peel back the surface of a leaf and rub the soothing green slimy gel over the wound. Keep a piece in the car or handbag – it lasts for months.
