Aloe striata-Coral Aloe

More attractive than Aloe saponaria. Great flower display in late winter. A slow to moderate grower forms a large rosette. Fleshy leaves are pale gray and broad at the base. Leaves have fine longitudinal lines and also pink margins. Clusters of flowers are coral red to orange on 3' stalks. South African native.  It is best with filtered sun.  It is a little frost tender but more cold hardy than saponaria.
