Aloe Vera, often called the "Medicine Plant, "Miracle Plant" or the "Natural Healer", Aloe Vera is a plant of many surprises. It flourishes in warm and dry climates, and many people mistake it for a cactus, but in fact it is a member of the Lily family. It stays moist where other plants would wilt and die, closing its pores to prevent the loss of moisture. Perennial, Zone 8-10. Shipped in bare root wrapped with moist organic matter.
