Aloe Plicatilis is a succulent shrub or small tree in the genus Kumara. This plant, also known as Kumara Plicatilis, belongs to the Asphodelaceae family. Recently, it has been proposed this plant shouldn’t be added in Aloiampelos, the tree Aloe genus along with Aloiampelos ciliaris (climbing Aloe).This plant is native to the Fynbos Ecoregion Mountains of Western Cape, South Africa, and areas experiencing high winter rainfalls. This aloe plant is also found in rocky slopes and is ideal for growing in areas with cold, wet winters and dry, hot summers.The stunning tree grows about 8’ feet tall and 6’ feet wide with a gray trunk supporting its multiple forked branches. Each branch produces inflorescence clusters of blue-green or grey-green oblong leaves.These leaves have a fan-like shape and are fleshy and flattened without any spines. They grow about 12” inches long and 2” inches wide. As the plant matures, the lower leaves start dying, exposing its trunk.
