Solitary of stemmed aloe up to 3' tall, eventually becoming decumbent (falling over). Stem has retained dead leaves on it. Rosettes densely leaved with flattish, thick, wide leaves, sometimes with some spotting. Leaves pale and glaucous. Looks somewhat like Aloe littoralis. South African native. Pretty rare still in cultivation.
