This is a very variable plant, though probably due mostly to different environmental conditions. I saw this plant in a cooler climate getting a bit of protection and it was an upright suckering green aloe with marked white linear flecking and sharp spines along the edges. However, in a warmer climate without any protection and water it was a low growing maroon plant barely 6" tall. Leaves still fairly long (up to 2'). Inflorescences very open with sparse, conical racemes of flowers. South AFrican native
