While I do not see the need to grow aloes in my system (they are native to South Africa and the eastern Cape, and grow in my garden just on rain), I did look at another potential plant once.  Aromatic geraniums are big money commercial plants, and I successfully grew one in my first system.  The are also arid zone plants, and I did not know how it would do.  It was in a permanently flooded gravel bed and still grew like magic. 
What a great suggestion Kobus...I will try that. Looks like they will complement the roses that I am going to try to grow for my better half :-)

I also did not grow it from seed - got a small soil-based seedling, wshed off the dirt and planted it.  Let me know how it works if you try
