Nice to see large a specimen of Aloe.Kew has a large collection of them but lack of space means the plants can't be grown to large.

It's not so bad. This specimen is considered small...if you want see large ones...do a search and you'll see the giant ones that grow here. This Aloe can grow taller than 50ft/16m.

There are some lovely Aloes in bloom at the moment at Kew; A. dawei, A. vagillans, A. evensii, dumetorum and A. schelpei to name a few.

It's usually quite a sight when there's many species blooming at the same time together. We grow many hundreds of species/varieties here in CA. Many have been blooming for the last month or so.
