Flower of the Day: Aloe vera

My Aloe plant is putting out blooms. I found out that only mature plants of at least four years of age bloom and I have had the plant for exactly four years! Here’s something else that’s interesting about them: Medicinal aloe bears small tubular yellow flowers on branched stalks up to 3 ft tall. The real Aloe vera has yellow flowers, but many of the clones available have orange flowers.
