Aloe jucunda - a highly localised, critically endangered Somalian endemic

Walker, Colin (2022). Aloe jucunda - a highly localised, critically endangered Somalian endemic. Haworthiad, 36(2) pp. 61–63.

Abstract

Aloe jucunda is a popular species and now commonly cultivated. This is mainly due to its small size (although in time it can grow into a large clump), ease of propagation from offsets which are readily produced and its free-flowering habit. Its closest relative may possibly be Aloe somaliensis; both are endemic to Somalia with A. jucunda being very localised and critically endangered. Aloe jucunda has also been popular as a parent in many hybrids. All these aspects are discussed below.
