Nicely tolerant of the Arizona deserts, it withstands a good amount of morning to mid-day sun, flowers reliably and even withstood the 19F snap of 2007. Very attractive pattern upon the leaves, especially when blushing under stress.

One of the more attractive stemless linearly striped aloes. This one has closely spaced, very sharp spines along the bright green leaf edges and showy. Flowers usually single but one of the most branched inflorescences of all the Aloes with a dozen or more flowers on a single stalk. Flowers somewhat globoid in shape and reddish orange with a hint of green sometimes- spectacular flowers!
