I was quite surprised to learn how many different types of ALOE plants there are in the Asphodelaceae family. Aloe is a genus of over 500 species of flowering succulent plants and one of my favorite photographic subjects. It is native to Africa, Madagascar, Arabia and the islands of the Indian Ocean.
The most commonly used species, ALOE VERA (Aloe Barbadensis) was used by the ancient Greeks and Romans to treat wounds.
