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