Aloe "Green Gold" is a low-growing shrub which produces multibranched inflorescences with dense racemes of yellow flowers tipped with green (thus the name). This plant flowers in winter. It was produced by Sunbird Aloes in South Africa.

Not to be confused with xGasteraloe "Green Gold" which is a much smaller plant with spots and leaf texture, sometimes listed as an aloe but showing some Gasteria in the mix.
