Aloe ramosissima is a garden favourite in many rockeries due to its ability to withstand long spells of drought and its small tree-like appearance. The plants are very closely related to Aloe dichotoma but form a large bush instead of a tree.
The natural distribution of Aloe ramosissima is the very dry and hot areas of the northern Richtersveld and southern Namibia while the distribution of Aloe dichotoma is wider. In nature plants are found that appear to be intermediate between the two species.
The flowers are identical to those of Aloe dichotoma and appear from June to August.
The cultivation of Aloe ramosissima is quite easy as long as the plants are kept in well drained soil and not over watered. Like many other Aloes the plants are prone to get ugly cancerous growths.
Propagation is from seed although cuttings can also root at times.
