this is a gem of a species, with incredible turquoise coloration adorned with large, bright red marginal teeth. Recently described (eary 2000s ) plant from Madagascar. Reportedly related to Aloe divariacata, but does not grow anything like one (very slow in comparison). Does tend to get long stems up to 4' but decumbent and branching into large colonies of low-growing plants. With lots of sun, turquoise leaves can take on a purplish coloration.
