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. The panicles of red flowers are produced in the early fall to early winter. These plants are seedlings in 5-inch pots.
