Nice, tolerant plant from Madagascar that handles the desert better than I would initially assume. It's not very hardy to frost, but the heat and even a bit of sun don't seem to harm it. It does look better with weekly watering in the summer - not an Aloe you can totally ignore in Arizona.

Stemless, wide/short leaf aloe with tiny teeth along leaf margins- from Madagascar. Very neat and tidy plant. Generally solitary. Flowers about 3' tall and pale red to red-orange in fall/winter. Plants show a lot of nice red color when stressed (cool, dehydrated, etc.).
