Plant Family Guides: Aloes Plant-Family Guides
Native to sub-Saharan Africa, Madagascar, and Arabia, Aloes are evergreen succulents with usually spiny leaves arranged in neat rosettes, and spectacular, candle-like inflorescences bearing clusters of brilliant yellow, orange or red, tubular flowers. They exist in a wide range of sizes, colors and offer an amazing array of leaf shapes.
There is a wide range of perennial plants that will bring out the best qualities of your succulents and share their space with a serene balance.
If you limit yourself to the succulent palette, there is a high probability your garden will look heavy and rigid since lacking the movement ornamental grasses provide.
Find a list of pretty shrubs that share most of the growing requirements of cacti and succulents. They will bring out the best in both the succulents and their world.
