Aloe barbadensis

Aloe is a succulent plant that thrives consistently year after year with close to no maintenance. Besides the beautiful aesthetic it adds to a landscape, it is also a medicinal plant used externally and internally. The gel from within the leaves used topically is amazing for the skin,  aiding with healing minor burns like a sun burn and skin abrasions. Internally, a drink made with the clear gel aids with digestion and constipation.
