This is just one of many aloes that can be seen in the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. They are such cool plants!

The most striking one I've seen, however, is the spiral aloe. Its leaves grow in a perfect geometric spiral in multiple rows. Truly a spectacular plant to behold.

I've recently seen these unbelievable blooms as cut flowers at the local Whole Food grocery store. I can't resist touching them to be sure they aren't plastic. They seem too gaudy to be real. Hope you enjoy yours in Phoenix.
