Aloe castanea, also known as Cat's Tail Aloe, is a branching tree Aloe from South Africa that grows up to 8-12 feet tall or forms a shrubby mass. Its bluish-green leaves, up to 5 feet long, curve inward with sharp, hooked teeth. In mid-winter, it produces unusual dark orange-brown flowers along snake-like inflorescences. Native to South Africa, particularly Limpopo, it prefers full sun, well-draining soil, and occasional watering. Drought-tolerant but blooms better with summer water. Hardy to -5°C (22°F), it's often grown in pots or as a patio plant. Pruning can manipulate its height and spread. With colorful foliage, it adds seasonal interest to gardens and attracts birds and insects.
