This is what the tag said on my plant when I bought it:
Aloe 'Firebird' is a Shannon Lyons hybrid of Aloe descoingsii and Aloe thompsoniae that forms a loose rosette to 6″ in diameter with long, slender emerald green leaves with some small light speckles.
Flowers are borne on tall spikes and are very bright tangerine. Seems to be in flower most of the year! Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright, filtered light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost.
