Aloe camperi

This colony-forming aloe consists of individual plants growing to about 2' tall and equally as wide.  Each plants produces abundant offsets known as pups. The leaves are light green, fairly narrow, and with a row of teeth on each margin. 

The orange-yellow flowers are formed on branched stalks early in the spring.  Aloe camperi will tolerate full sun to afternoon shade and is considered quite drought tolerant.
