Hi all,

Back in 2004 I visited the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, AZ and saw the most unusual aloe with yellow-orange leaves. I wrote down the name and took pics, but as usual when it is something one really likes, I can't find the name nor the pics. Could someone help with identifying this aloe? Oh, the plants looked quite healthy so I think this was their true color (as opposed to a manifestation of disease). Thanks.

Many aloes if stressed enough will develop unusual colored leaves, from red to orange to yellow, to grey,purple etc. However, rarely is that the NORMAL color of the leaves, and color is rarely an important point of identication of an aloe, just for that reason.
