Backyard Gardener: Growing aloe vera in your garden

“Aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis) is an easy plant to grow in a sunny indoor location. Our potted plant (left) has been growing for years with little care. Flowers form in spring when grown under ideal conditions (upper right). To apply to a wound or burn, break off a leaf and spread the clear sap on the affected area (lower right). (Plant and sap photos by Jeff Schalau, University of Arizona. Flower photo is by William M. Ciesla, Forest Health Management International, Bugwood.org.”)
