this is a shrubby Kenyan aloe that is a prolific suckerer and fairly rapid grower, filling an area seveal feet wide in just two years from small cutting in my southern California back yard. Leaves are turquoise green and long with pale, light-brown-tipped teeth. Plant is not exceptionally ornamental and is a reluctant flowerer in my yard (only flowered once in three years). Still (2011) pretty rare in cultivation.
