Great looking tree aloe with single stem, long, arching, drooping smooth leaves and wonderful top of branchig gold flowers in winter. Sometimes confused with other South African tree aloes like A thraskii or A alooides, which also have long, tapering smooth leaves. However, flowers are very different on A alooides, and somewhat different on A thraskii (sometimes difficult to tell these two apart)- A angelica flowers are a bit shorter (at least the flowering part is). This species is harder to find than A thraskii.
