smallish blue-green to maroon stemmed, branching (from the base) aloe with stiff, flattish, dramatically recurved, thin leaves (almost plastic-like) with pronounced marginal teeth. from Madagascar. Flower bright red to red orange, but simple and open (flowers far apart) and not very impressive. In southern California this is an easy plant to grow and it does well in both full shade and full sun (though looks very different in shade- bright green and tall).
