Widely distributed in southern Africa, from Namibia across to Mozambique, this maculate Aloe is distinguished by the banding on the leaves that earns it its species epithet. The plants form clumps that are reasonably controlled in cultivation. We‘ve had our plants withstand low temperatures of 23F. This variant, from material collected at Hildavale, Botswana (WE 265), has yellow flowers, which are produced in the early fall to early winter, but the plant looks similar to the normal version. These plants are rooted offsets in 5-inch pots.
