Does Aloe spinosissima go by another name?

Like many garden hybrids, it has a few invented names (see thread below), but the name in general use is Aloe x spinosissima (the x tells you it is a hybrid and not a species name). The sign in the picture is actually incorrect without this extra letter.

More info on a duplicate version of this thread here.
