Small clumping East African aloe with short, bumpy, triangular leaves. Very common and prolific in cultivation. Does okay in full sun but better with a little protection. Has been used for hybrids. Often confused with Aloe squarrosa, a different, much less common plant which can be distinguished by its recurved leaves. Both of these plants are sometimes called Aloe zanzibarica in the trade, but that is an obsolete name specific for squarrosa (only). Neither is from Zanzibar. Details here.
