This image does not look like Aloe brevifolia, which is a gray/blue plant. It is most likely Aloe x nobilis, a green plant.

There is a second image of what looks like the same plant here. and it's also most likely Aloe x nobilis.

Since the database has no page for Aloe x nobilis (which apparently is not a natural hybrid), I guess the best place to move these images would be the generic Aloe entry.

Aloes (Aloe)

Please let me know what you think.

Thank You!

This one is also on Mountain Crest Gardens' Aloe nobilis page, so it should be treated the same way:

Eagle eye! Smiling

For what it's worth, I don't think Mountain Crest Gardens should be treated as any authority on aloes... I see a couple of made up plant names on their aloe page.

I also see a couple of other images for Aloe brevifolia in the database which look like they may need to be moved.... but one step at a time. Smiling Just in case you were comparing photos and wondering why a couple of them look just like the images that Joy uploaded. Aloe x nobilis is a presumed hybrid of Aloe brevifolia, thus the source of the confusion.

I posted it from a website that gave me permission. So if it looks wrong to you
I'll take your word for it as i really don't know?
