Small, usually offsetting aloe with glaucous leaves and oblique inflorescences. The inflorescences, while relatively small (raceme 8-10 inches), can be quite showy because they are very densely flowered and have an unusual sideways orientation. This plant is quite tolerant of heat and drought, but somewhat susceptible to rot when conditions are wet. Provide strong light and excellent drainage in cultivation.
