|This plant is not Aloe thraskii, which is a single-stemmed tree aloe. It looks more like cameronii but without a flower it may be hard to pin down. Do you have any more info about this plant? I would like propose to move the image to the generic aloe listing until it can be more specifically identified. Please let me know what you think.|

|I saw this plant at Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, FL. I took a picture of the plant, and then a picture of the tag right in front of it. I don't know if they had it mislabeled or not. Here is the second picture I took of the label in front of the plant.|
And here's another photo where you can see the A. thraskii sign in the background next to the same plant.

|The sign must be wrong, or the plant must have passed on - there appears to be what could be a dead looking trunk on the ground right behind the sign.|

A. thraskii, simply is a much bigger plant even at the size of the Aloes in your pictures. I agree with Baja that those plants look a lot like A. cameronii.
The other sign in your picture is an Aloe name (Aloe carronii) that does not return much when I look for it on some of the plant lists out there, could that be a misspelling of A. cameronii?
Botanical gardens do make mistakes.

|I couldn't help but wonder about the other sign so I looked up in the DB then Googled it and still nothing for A. carronii? I did get "Did you mean: aloe cameronii". Nothing to do with the original post however. cross posted... good observation about the trunk.|

|Looks like the detectives have solved the case. Here's a photo you can compare (color depends on exposure; plant is green in less sun).|
I would be happy to propose that the photo be moved to the listing for cameronii.
