History

Aloes can withstand periods of drought, by storing moisture in their fleshy leaves, which have a resilient waxy cuticle covering their surface. The genus name Aloe is derived from the Greek word 'alsos' which means the 'bitter juice from the leaves. The flowers of the Blue Elf Aloe are a favorite of hummingbirds.
