Trendy succulents look great both indoors and out, but aloe vera offers more than just pretty decor: the clear gel inside the plant helps heal wounds and soothes sunburned skin! This easy-to-grow, tough plant adds beauty to the garden but grows well inside, too. Plant in a sunny, well-drained location outside in year-round warm climates, or grow aloe in a container to bring in when temperatures fall below 50 degrees. (Use cactus potting mix for best drainage.) If you’re growing it inside, place in bright, indirect light. Keep aloe in the kitchen for a quick burn remedy. Tender perennial.
