Aloe bainesii Plants | Aloe barberae PlantsAloe bainesii also known as Aloe barberae, is a large, tall tree aloe native to southern Africa. In habitat, this drought-resistant succulent can reach 50 feet tall and 3 feet trunk diameter, making Aloe bainesii/Aloe barberae Africa's largest aloe. Its trunk and branches are gray, forking eventually forming a spreading, rounded crown. Aloe bainesii/Aloe barberae has long dark green recurved and channeled leaves forming a dense rosette. Flowers appear in mid-winter on side branches with tuberous pink (green-tipped) petals.

Aloe bainesii/Aloe barberae habitat is subtropical eastern southern Africa. It grows in warm, well-drained river valleys and coastal forest in a mild climate. Rainfall is at least 40-60 inches annually, with little or no frost. So, Aloe bainesii/Aloe barberae should be protected from a hard frost, particularly when young.

Aloe bainesii/Aloe barberae forms a striking structural focal point in the garden, becoming a large specimen over time. In a dry climate, it needs some shade, to avoid yellowing. In a humid climate, it can handle full sun. Good drainage is very important, and this plan thrives on a slope. Enough space should be provided for its eventual size.
