upcountry: Aloe trees growing in Kula Maui Hawaii - 04/20/17 05:29 PM
I've often seen these strange looking trees growing in Kula Maui and wondered what they were, until I learned they are members of the aloe family.  You can find them growing upcountry in the cooler climates such as Kula and Makawao. 
Apparently you can grow them easily from a cutting that's been allowed to dry out for a week or two first.  They prefer a dry well drained soil on a slope, which explains why they like the Kula region.
