Featured in Up Close this issue (Fall 2013, pg. 56), candelabra aloe (Aloe arborescens) is native to Africa. It’s also common in coastal Southern California, where it’s drought- tolerant and hardy. Each rosette features spiky leaves up to 2 feet long and red flower clusters up to 1 foot long. Aloe arborescens supplements—made with leaf juice and pulp—are commonly sold as immune system enhancers by natural health stores. By Sarah Dorison, Photo by Josh McCullough
