This is a lime green suckering aloe with mod small, toothed, arched stiff leaves from Kenya. Leaves have a plastic-like consistency and very smooth. Tends to get dark red-brown in hot sun or/and cold weather. Flowers in mid to early winter- solitary racemes with pinkish- red-orange flowers with greenish tips. Flowers somewhat conical shaped. This plant seems relatively cold sensitive for an aloe showing moderate freeze damage before most others do.
