It is native to the Arabian Peninsula, but due to its hardiness and ability to survive in arid environments, it has been introduced to many regions worldwide, including Australia.
In Australia, aloe vera is grown commercially for its various uses, including as a popular ingredient in cosmetics, skincare products, and health supplements. Aloe vera is also used in the food industry, and the gel extracted from the plant is added to drinks, yogurts, and other products for its purported health benefits.
With over 400 species of Aloe Vera, their fiery flowers make for the most spectacular plant to have in your winter garden for the flowering season from Autumn to Spring. They also make wonderful hedges. If you ever have the chance to visit the Royal Botanical Gardens in Melbourne, take note of their fabulous Aloe Vera hedge.
