Small, usually suckering aloe from South Africa and Lesotho with green leaves that taper to a dry terminal bristle. Dotted with white tubercles. Looks like a Haworthia. Often found at high altitudes, and unusually cold tolerant for an aloe. Somewhat susceptible to rot in cultivation (grow on the dry side with excellent drainage and strong light). Large orange-red flowers for the size of the plant, and often a repeat bloomer. A frequent parent of hybrids in cultivation. Stoloniferous.
