The Cat's Tail Aloe. This is one of the tree Aloes from South Africa and can reach up to 2.4m tall (8Ft) once mature it will have a single trunk then develop branches as it grows. The height can easily be restricted by pruning to encourage a shrub like habit. The flowers are an unusual orange/dark brown colour and form on curled stems hence the name. It is one of the hardier Aloes but not fully hardy so in the UK it's best grown in a container or a very free draining soil in a warmer part of the country if grown outdoors.
