Garas Park

The quiver tree or Aloidendron dichotomumis probably the best-known aloe found in South Africa and Namibia. This distinctive tree aloe has smooth branches, which are covered with a thin layer of whitish powder that helps to reflect away the hot sun’s rays. The bark on the trunk forms beautiful golden-brown scales but be aware that the edges of these scales are razor sharp. The crown is often densely rounded as a result of the repeatedly forked branches, hence the species name dichotoma meaning ‘forked’. The blue-green leaves are borne on terminal rosettes but in juvenile plants the leaves are ranked in vertical rows. The bright yellow flowers are borne from June to July. Read more >
