Very commonly sold and grown miniature aloe in Southern California. Is spotted and has prominent white teeth, which together with small rosette size gives the impression of fuzziness from a distance (is not, though). Leaves turn a brownish bronze in hot summer sun, but plant tolerates it well. Good grower and one of the most common aloes sold at garden outlet stores. Suckers profusely and makes almost a growncover effect. Simple dark orange-red flowers in summer.
