I purchased 2 at the c&s show unmarked, and one has been in my yard for a long time, and has been very prolific. I can't for the life of me remember the name of it.

The dark Orange single stalked flower belongs to the third aloe I can't identify.

Here are the first two in the pots I bought them in.

The third photo are the two, one on each side of the variegata.

First Aloe was likely identified as Aloe ibitiensis, which is wrong. It is Aloe deltoideodonta variety fallax. The second one is some hybrid I think, possibly even with another genus (such as Gasteria). Third Aloe looks like another hybrid called Aloe 'Crosby's Prolific', which I think is an Aloe nobilis hybird (or looks like it should be).
