I just planted one,so no real info to tell. All I can say is-- it lights up the area it's in. I would say its EXTREMELY variegated,and would make a great Aloe for light shade.

This is a popular cultivar of this species... tends to be slower growing and a bit smaller in ultimate size. Also a bit less happy about full sun, but will tolerate full sun if acclimated slowly and not blazing heat. I have not personally seen this form of aloe flower so no idea what color they are... assume they are red if this form flowers.
