Not exactly stunning for an Aloe, but it handles the heat, sun and frosts of the Arizona desert better than most. It's also good for erosion control if you let it run amok. The flowers are reliable every year.

Club-shaped flowers. Freestate, NCape, NWest provinces of SA. Rosette resemble some forms of Zebrina.

Small zebra-looking aloe that looks about like 20 other zebra-looking species. THis one has dark green leaves with a lot of linear white spoting and pink-orange flowers in winter. Small plant. Not a profuse suckerer (in my experience). But really, there is nothing terribly unique about this one.
