I photographed this Aloe in South-Africa. Does anyone know which species it is? Simply an A. vera?

Not Aloe vera (yellow flowers in a taller raceme). But I couldn't tell you exactly which aloe it might be. Pretty flowers! Thumbs up

There are so many species of Aloe and it almost seems like they come out with a new hybrid everyday. And so many just look alike. I have told myself that asking for an Aloe ID is expecting a lot. But hey, who knows? Gene

I know, but one can always hope, not asking is certainly not going to be helpful. Besides it is probably no hybrid as they grew only local species in that garden, unfortunately there was no one available who knew the plants,

Rudd, When I was at a gardens which I saw a few plants without an ID, one of the people there told me to email them with a picture and they did get back to me with an ID. Can you call them for a email address and do the same? Most gardens do their best to ID every plant in their collections. Most could be found on google search.

If you are sure it is an Aloe species and not either a cultivated or garden hybrid, you can try clicking through this gallery, which has many good pictures of many (but I am sure not all) Aloe species:

http://www.agaveville.org/view...

The moderator of that gallery is very knowledgeable and has seen and grown many many Aloes in southern California, you can also try posting your picture in the Aloe discussion section - he checks in regularly and may recognize it.
