|Although most Aloes have some medicinal or commercial value, the most commonly known is the Aloe barbadensis... better known as Aloe vera.
All Aloes are semitropical succulent plants, and may only be grown outdoors in areas where there is no chance of freezing.
However, they make excellent house plants when they are given sufficient light. Potted Aloes benefit from spending the summer outdoors. Older
specimens may even bloom, producing a tall stock covered with bright colored coral flowers. Many people grow them for medicinal purposes.
