The plant produces tight, spiraling rosettes of smooth-edged, V-shaped green leaves up to 6in/15cm long and lV2in/4cm wide. The leaves are marked with irregular paler bands of color, which give the plant its most frequently used common name. It is also known as the tiger aloe, pheasant’s wings, and the kanniedood aloe, which translates as the aloe that cannot be killed—a tribute to its hardiness. Coral pink flowers appear during late winter and early spring on stems up to 12in/30cm long, growing from the leaf axils. The flowers are at their best after the plant has been given a winter rest.
