Most prefer hot sun and good drainage, but some are happy in shady corners. And many flower in winter which is great - colour when the garden can easily be drab. They also provide food for birds when other sources may be scarce. The endless variation on a basic form of rosette with green leaves, a spiny edge and a red flower makes aloes fascinating to grow. Although many aloes are superficially similar, all are unique in some way. This book lists and describes most of the hundreds of aloe species and illustrates 90 of them with full colour photos.
