Maui Blog - Georgie Hunter R(S): Aloe trees growing in Kula Maui Hawaii

Aloe trees growing in Kula Maui Hawaii

I've often seen these strange looking trees growing in Kula Maui and wondered what they were, until I learned they are members of the aloe family.  You can find them growing upcountry in the cooler climates such as Kula and Makawao. 

Apparently you can grow them easily from a cutting that's been allowed to dry out for a week or two first.  They prefer a dry well drained soil on a slope, which explains why they like the Kula region.

The tops do resemble the aloe vera on my porch!  Interesting!

Hi Georgie

They are pretty cool looking, and do look a bit like the smaller aloe plants we see. They look familiar so I must have seen then when in HI on one of my trips.

Jeff Dowler After doing some research I see they grow in your area too.  Maybe now you will notice them now that you have been alerted to them.

Good morning Georgie. This is a fantastic looking tree. I never knew they grew so large.

Sheila Anderson It's in the same family as the common aloe we all use to put on burns, but a much larger version.

Thanks for your comments.
