A Quiver Tree is a member of the aloe family and is native to southern Africa. The tree gets its name from the fact that its hollow branches were used by the native San people to make quivers for their arrows.
The Quiver Tree is a striking plant, with a tall, slender trunk and long, green leaves. It is most commonly found in arid or semi-arid regions, such as the Namib Desert.
If you're lucky enough to see a Quiver Tree in the wild, it's best to visit during the late summer or early autumn months. This is when the tree is in bloom, and its flowers are simply beautiful. Trust us, it's worth making the effort to see this amazing tree in person!
