Caption: Quiver trees. Flowering quiver trees (Aloe dichotoma). These succulents can reach 7 metres in height. The plants are so named due to the practice of the Khoikhoi people of southern Africa of using their hollowed branches to hold their arrows. Quiver trees produce these bright yellow flowers in winter. These stocky trees are native to arid rocky outcrops in southern Africa. Photographed in Keetmanshoop, Namibia.
