A succulent shrub of hybrid origin (aloe ciliaris x aloe socotrina), widespread in some european countries. The stem and leaves bear a strong resemblance to its parent, A. ciliaris, but the flowers set it apart, being much closer to those of regular aloes instead of the droopy ones belonging to ciliaris.
Plant can reach about 1,2 meters ( 4 feet) in height, with leaves about 30 cm/ 1 foot long, grown in full sun.
In partial shade, the plant will take on a near-creeping form, with leaves half of that growing in full sun, and a longer, thinner stem.
Leaves are dark green, concave, and thin, with small (less than 5mm/1/5th of an inch) spines. Offshoots prolifically and is easy to propagate.
Can tolerate a variety of soils, as long it meets minimum drainage requirements, and is not overwatered.
