This is not any form of Aloe vera (a more upright plant with other significant differences), but a different variegated aloe. Do you have a flower picture or any other information which might help pin down an ID? Otherwise I would recommend that we move this image to the generic aloe listing (and maybe delete the "Super White" entry unless there is a confirmed sighting of an Aloe vera cultivar called "Super White" elsewhere on the web). Please let me know what you think.

It was sold to me under the name of Aloe barbadensis v. variegated 'Super White', however according to this data base it is only a synonym? That is why it is in Aloe vera.

Sorry, I can't pin your plant down (too many aloes out there...). A flower might help there (sometimes that's the only way to tell plants apart).

Tell you what, I'll move the picture to the generic aloe listing for now and hopefully someone will recognize it soon so that the photo can be placed in a more specific bin.

I tip my hat to you.
