Pack of 5 seeds.

If the Kokerboom is the most massive of the Aloes, then the Eastern Tree Aloe is the true giant of the group. Truly assuming tree-like proportions, this grows 18 metres tall with a spread of 12 metres or more.Although called a tree it is in reality one of the largest monocotyledon's and is more closely related to Lilies (it was once classified in the same family) than any type of true tree. This used to be known as Aloe bainesii, until the earlier name was given precedence.

The plant may flower in 20 years from seed in it's natural state, but in the far better conditions it will find in cultivation, this is likely to happen much more quickly. The flowers look like those of red hot pokers (unsurprising as they are from the same family), they are orange red and where pollinated, they are followed by fleshy seed pods, which eventually dry out and split to shed the seeds .
