I have talked to two people that have aloe vera growing in the ground. They say they give them no extra attention, yet they are beautiful and come back every year. Where can I get this aloe vera? Can you please help, as I have spent a fortune on these plants, with no luck.

Where do these two people live - do they live in Missouri as well? The winters in Missouri are too harsh for the aloe vera plant to be grown outdoors. Some types of agave, which looks strikingly similar to aloe vera, can survive outside year round in Missouri, such as Agave parryi.
