Aloe (AL-oh): Aloe have thick, fleshy leaves and bloom with exotic tubular flowers. Foliage edges have teeth but are softer than they look. Colors are typically shades of green, but a number of hybrids and cultivars have interesting spots and color flushes that can make them very distinct and attractive. They are flexible growers - able to tolerate both indoor light and full sun. Their maximum size also varies between species, ranging from inches-wide miniatures to full size trees and shrubs.
