Aloe riveirei is actually from Yemen. It was described along with Aloe fleurentiniorum in the Cactus & Succulent Journal in 1969.
I grow this plant here in Idaho and can't say it's one of my all time favorites. It seems happiest when the temps are in the 80's, which is only for a couple months up here. I'm sure this plant, coming from Yemen, would prefer to be in Arizona. I have yet to see it flower. My plant is about 12 inches tall. I keep it outdoors from April-October and indoors for winter in a sunny window.

Interesting looking Aloe with underground suckering ability- creates colonies of bright yellow-green, very upright, plants on little stalks. The leaves are relatively thin for an aloe and only slightly toothed along the margins. Flowers are simple, tall, dark pink in winter. African native.
