In my garden, in Sicily, I have a very big ALOE BAINESII.
You can see the picture in this link:
www.vivaifalcone.com
I think is the biggest fo Europe.
Is there anybody who did see other Aloes like these anywhere?
And about temperature, do you kwnow what's the minimum temperature these Aloe can tollerate?
Thanks

Welcome to the forum, Angelo!! What a beautiful tree!! I did not know that any Aloe grew so large. I'm used to the small ones that grow as houseplants and have seen a few about the size of a small bush. Do you have any idea how old it is? Is the plant common in Sicily?

We're having a hard freeze for the past few days, so I know it wouldn't do down here? Doesn't it occasionally snow in Sicily? Thank you for sharing it.

I would also like to know what the tall plant in the second picture is. It looks very familiar, but I cannot remember anything about it.

Ann
