The large group of Aloe arborescens and the large specimen of Aloe plicatilis in the Traffic Islands Garden were a frequent source of floral nectar for Tui when those plants were flowering during winter and winter to mid-spring respectively. The planting of the four spring-flowering Aloe species discussed in this article meant that Aloe floral nectar became available to Tui in the Park throughout the whole of the winter and spring periods in 2010-2012.
