Scattered stands of Aloe pearsonii in its stony slope habitat may dominate parts of the vegetation. Some bare patches are in view wherever one looks in this arid land, bigger shrubs being few. Succulent plants that store moisture for the frequent dry periods have head start to grow again as soon as conditions permit.
Dense branching of Aloe pearsonii allows for a bit of shade to be earned for some of its branches in turn, as well as over the roots. A few small plants unlike aloes are likely to be found ensconced in the shelter provided, enjoying respite from full sun for part of the day.
