    Aloe 'Hercules' (Hercules Aloe) A large hybrid tree aloe that is the result of a cross between the large Tree Aloe, Aloe barberae (A. bainesii) and the smaller Quiver Tree, Aloe dichotoma. The plant exhibits hybrid vigor, growing faster than Aloe barberae with a heavier trunk, thicker branches and peeling bark more typical of Aloe dichotoma but with broad triangular dark green leaves. Relatively young large specimens can be seen in southern California and it seems likely that they will grow to 30 to 40 feet. Most of these plants have yet to flower but mature plants have beautiful green-tipped salmon flowers that can appear sporadically from spring to fall. Plant in full sun and water occasionally to infrequently. Hardiness reports are that it is hardier than either parent and can tolerate temperatures down to at least 20° F though unverified reports are that it has been hardy only to 23°F. It is a unique looking plant that sometimes confused with, but quite different from Aloe barberae or the yellow-orange flowering form of Aloe barberae that comes from Mozambique that is often referred to as the Medusa form of Aloe barberae and now described as Aloe tongaensis. Hercules aloe is a striking aloe tree that commands attention with its beauty, unusual appearance, and sheer magnitude once mature. As it gets older, the aloe leaves fall off the bottom, revealing a tree trunk on the bottom and leaving a crown of long, green succulent leaves at the top.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
