Are Aloe Vera Plants Angiosperms or Gymnosperms?

Aloe vera is an angiosperm plant because it flowers. Angiosperm plants have a true root system, leaves, stems and flowers. The roots hold the plant in place and allow the plant to absorb water and nutrients, while the stems move the nutrients around the plant and the flowers help the plant spread and grow.
