Aloe bainseii
Aloe bainseii
Often sought after, but sometimes difficult to obtain, this is a magnificent specimen plant. One is reputed to be the most photographed plant in Auckland's Regional Botanical Gardens! A tree-like species from South Africa, it can grow to 15 metres in ideal conditions with a 2 metre trunk - in cooler NZ though, such vigorous growth is highly unlikely. Rich green, sword-shaped leaves, with rose-tipped green flowers in winter.

Stunning landscape form, excellent specimen plant.
