  • Special notes:  
    This is a smaller clumping aloe which produces a colony of 5-6 inch rosettes by suckering profusely. The mounding plant is about 18 inches tall and composed of fleshy green leaves that have a rose tint on the tips and white, sharp but flexible teeth running mostly along the leaf margins. The teeth glow when backlight by sunlight. Aloe nobilis makes a nice dry ground cover that puts on a solid floral display in summer with red-orange flower spikes rising 1 to 2 feet above the leaf rosettes.
