Browsing: Aloe

Aloe is a genus of flowering succulent plants, native to Africa, Madagascar, and the Arabian Peninsula. The origin of the genus name is uncertain, but the most popularly accepted suggestions are that it is derived from the Arabic words “alloch” or “alloeh”, a vernacular name for medicinally used members of the genus, or the Greek word “aloë”, referring to the dried juice of aloe leaves.
