Coral Aloe (Coral Red Flowers)

 

A solitary succulent, this aloe has broad, flattened leaves with smooth margins, and faint vertical lines. The foliage color can be variable depending on the amount of sunlight from either a dull reddish-green, or a grey-green with a pinkish-red edge. Clusters of pendulous, glossy coral-red flowers on branched stems appear in spring.
