this is basically a Somalian aloe (though really limited geographically to the Republic of Djibouti which is adjacent to Somalia)- smallish, spreading, solitary (sometimes suckering) plant with dark green to grey-green leaves and prominent, dull white marginal teeth. Leaves have some linear spotting. Unfortunately looks a LOT like many other Somalian aloes with those 'plastic-like' stiff, brittle, linearly spotted leaves and pink flowers. Very rare in cultivation.
