ALOE SAPONARIA
Soap Aloe

This fast growing aloe is very tolerant of drought and salt. It is an excellent choice for seaside, rock and cactus gardens. Use it as a ground cover under palms, agaves or large cacti. Also a great container plant that will live for years in very little soil. Hummingbirds are attracted to the showy flowers. Called Soap Aloe because the sap from the juicy leaves makes suds in water and can be used as a soap substitute. Freely suckers.
