There are 41 species of Aloe recorded from Arabia (Newton, 2001) which encompasses the countries of Saudi Arabia, the Yemen (including Socotra) and Oman. The aloes are principally restricted to the areas in the west and south-west of the peninsula. In this article I am focusing on just two species because they are linked historically and also because I have experience of both in cultivation.
