Distribution: South Africa: Northern Cape Province: Richtersveld: Namibia: Southern parts.


Aloe ramosissima is a garden favourite in many gardens due to its ability to withstand long spells of drought and its small tree-like appearance. The plants are very closely related to Aloe dichotoma but form a large bush instead of a tree.



The flowers are identical to those of Aloe dichotoma and appear from June to August.



The cultivation of Aloe ramosissima is quite easy as long as the plants are kept in well drained soil and not over watered. Like many other Aloes the plants are prone to get ugly cancerous growths.
