The Aloaceae are broad-leaved succulent species that usually have conspicuous flowers in terminal inflorescences. The family includes many common garden plants, some of which are very large.

One species of Aloe has become naturalised in Tasmania. Aloe maculata is a common plant in gardens. It is a moderately large herb with tapering succulent, toothed leaves with numerous pale spots. The leaves have strong teeth. The flowers are red, tubular and carried on an erect stalk.
