Aloe pearsonii
Aloe pearsonii is endemic to Namibia.
This species occurs in pockets of sandy soil among rocks in one of the hottest and driest parts of the Namaqualand fog belt. In South Africa Aloe pearsonii have declined by at least 30%over the past 10 years, due to dramatic increases in grazing pressure since 2006. It is a spiny species that is not usually browsed, but overgrazing has reduced palatable species to such an extent that desperate livestock are now starting to browse this species, and many plants are dying as a result of the damage caused. Recruitment is poor, and mortality of mature individuals is high.

Description: Aloe pearsonii is an erect, shrubby aloe, 1-2 m tall with many unbranched stems arising from the ground. It has triangular leaves that grow in dense layers, with four or five leaves per layer. These layers curve downwards in an attractive geometric pattern. The leaves are mostly greyish, unspotted and often show different colouring on the same plant. At the top the leaves are fully exposed to the sun and tend to turn reddish whereas the leaves at a lower insertion level are partially shaded and thus remain green The flowers are red to yellow with the stamens shortly protruding from the mouth, 30 mm long. This is one of the slowest-growing of all aloes, and some of the large shrubs in the Richtersveld are probably several hundred years old.
