Aloe ramosissima
Origin and Habitat: Southern Africa
It is a slow growing tree (shrub) type aloe known for its many branches and smooth, white stems, and without a doubt the most profusely branched of all aloes. It will form a succulent bush up to 1,2(-1,8) m tall and wide. Other than this low branching habit and usually smaller leaf size, it is virtually identical to Aloe dichotoma, and some consider it a subspecies of A. dichotoma.
Flowers: Bright yellow
Blooming season: Winter: the first flower will be produced when plants gets 1-1,5 m of height (about 10 to 15 old).
Cultivation and Propagation: Winter grower. It has a very old and almost stressed appearance making this an excellent and sought-after container plant or wonderful landscape specimens in the garden, although it doesn't make a trunk.
Growing rate: They grow slowly, but not agonisingly so - being able to increase their height by 10 - 20 cm per year under favourable conditions. They are long lived plants and once established, they will be content in their position and with their soil for years.
Soil: Always use a good quality, loamy sandy soil with plenty of drainage chips at the bottom of containers.
Exposure: It can tolerate moderate shade, and a plant that has been growing in shade should be slowly hardened off before placing it in full sun as the plant will be severely scorched if moved too suddenly from shade into sun.
Watering: When growing this Aloe, one must be careful not to overwater.
Hardiness: They can take a few degrees of frost in winter as well, but prefer hot summers. It grows much better outdoors in spring and summer. If kept dry it is frost resistant and without trouble.
