Kenyan aloe. Looks very similar in leaf habit to Aloe confusa and flexilifolia- pale blue-green leaves that form a 'melting' rosette that usually is oriented perpendicular to the ground with all leaves tending to bend that direction. Solitary to infrequently branching near the base. Inflorescences bend downward and then back up with open rosettes of yellow to pale orange flowers (mine has not flowered yet so not sure what time of year). Stems grow up to 9 feet in length, but rarely upright- more laterally or even along ground a ways.

So far seems a pretty easy plant in southern California and a moderately fast grower.
