Aloe is a plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2 introduced in the 5.1.1. update. From time to time, it heals the plant on the tile in front of it on its immediate right, restoring its health. This plant is associated with the Epic Quest, Aloe, Salut! and is obtained at the end of the quest.
Aloe will start to heal a plant when its health is below 50%. It will give 10 health to any type of plant. After healing a plant, it takes approximately 10 seconds for it to be able to heal that plant again.
Aloe is based on the plant with the name of aloe vera and its ability is inspired by aloe vera's real world use, which is primarily used to accelerate the healing process of sunburned skin.
Sun cost: 75
Aloes heal injured plants to their immediate right.

Plant Food effect
When given with Plant Food, Aloe will instantly heal every plant in a 3x3 radius around it to full health.
Aloe is a healing plant that works well with defensive plants such as Wall-nut, Tall-nut, and the like. Due to its placement scheme, it limits the offensive power of the player a bit, preventing plants like Snapdragon and Phat Beet from dealing major damage. It can also be overwhelmed when there are too many zombies eating its defensive plant.
Aloe works extremely well with Chard Guard. When a Chard Guard has no leaves left and its health has been reduced below half, the Aloe will heal the Chard Guard and replenish all of its leaves. This can make for a stalemate situation that the player can use to their advantage to save up sun or prepare defenses (although more zombies will appear after a little while in other lanes). If you put Chard Guard in the right spot and there are not too many zombies eating it at a time, you can drag this on forever.
Aloe's healing ability however does not work with Infi-nut because of the fact it can already regenerate over time and it has lower health than a Wall-nut. It may not be suitable for the Explode-O-Nut because it will affect him negatively, since Explode-O-Nut was made to explode after it gets eaten, not to last an entire level.
The game will hint the player that Aloe and Kiwibeast can be a good combo. In fact, this is a good idea since Kiwibeast can deal damage, while Aloe heals Kiwibeast from damage. This can also work with Pea-nut and Endurian, but Kiwibeast is the most effective at dealing damage.
Plants vs. Zombies Wiki has a gallery for Aloe.
- It is similar in use to Heavenly Peach from the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2.
- However, Aloe costs 75 sun, while Heavenly Peach costs 125, and without Aloe's Plant Food effect it can only heal the plant in front of it, unlike Heavenly Peach which can heal in a 3x3 radius normally.
- Gold Bloom, Electric Currant, and Aloe are currently the only plants obtainable through completion of an Epic Quest.
- In an advertisement about getting Aloe on the title screen, the player can see its waterdrop is blue instead light green.
