This brevifolia variety of aloe is small in stature. These colored leaves, green-gray-bluish spotted with white, measure about twenty centimeters high and about ten in circumference.
It lends itself particularly well to a culture in pot or to the warm garden in the rockeries. It produces an inflorescence of about fifty centimeters of red to orange flowers.
It resists negative temperatures down to -6°C but only in dry soil.
