The Outdoor Establishments plant of the month for September is the Aloe plicatilis, or Fan Aloe as it is more commonly known.

The Fan Aloe is originally from South Africa and is recognised for its fan-like appearance and forked branches. This succulent can withstand long periods of drought due to its water-retaining leaves which make it a great, low maintenance pot plant for your balcony garden or rooftop garden. 

We love using this plant for its interesting shape in our garden designs. Do you want a Fan Aloe somewhere in your garden? Contact the Outdoor Establishments our design team for more information.
