Small clumping aloe from the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa with glaucous blue/green leaves and unbranched reddish flowers. The leaves usually have a line of spines along their underside. The shape of the rosette will depend on the variety, the exposure, and the care. The rosette may close in on itself in full sun or drought stress, especially in dense clumps. It may be erect or spreading (sometimes less glaucous) in protected locations like a greenhouse setting.
