I see a few candidates in the db but am unsure. A. maculata or A. zebrena or ??? These are a foot or so across and thriving in zone 9b.

I'm leaning towards A. maculata based on the inflorescence.

[Identified] Thank you Hetty. I've just taken a short course on spotted Aloe. Somewhat bemusing. I'm still seeing spots. Blinking I'm quite sure your ID is correct. Aloe maculata it is. I tip my hat to you.

It looks like and is the size of one of my aloes and it was said it could be Aloe maculata. It is a big aloe and pups like crazy.
