Aloe plicatilis
A unique and striking multi-branched shrub or small tree from South Africa's southwestern Cape where it's known as the fan aloe - a reference to the unique layout of its strap-like leaves. As the bush matures, racemes of tubular scarlet flowers are a spectacular sight in late-winter and spring.
