Wide leaf aloe with hint of mottling- turns pinky to pale blue in winter sun. Flowers are delicate looking yellow to yellow-orange in winter. Almost no teeth along the flat, floppy leaves. Looks a lot like Aloe striata except for the flower color and subtle mottling of the leaves. From S Africa and is vulnerable there.
