Hi, and welcome to the forums! :thumbs_up:

I have no idea what that one is called. But hang on, it may take some time, but I am sure someone will get back to you with a name! :wink:

Thank you. I like to think that I'm quite clued-up on my botany :mrgreen: but still some times struggle with the correct species.

Hope that some one will be able to help.

Price,
Aloe photo 2 and 4 is Aloe krapohliana. If 3 was taken in the vicinity as the previous two, then it may wel be the same species...although the leaves look a little too wide (but then I have no idea what else it could be)... so i think maybe it might be the same :wink:

Hope this helps.

Price, you need to do is GPS the sight and return when the aloe is in flower, you should also contact Ernst van Jaarsveld who is an expert on succulents and will be happy to help you. Too get hold of him phone Kirstenbosch and they will put you through to him.
Ask not what your plant can do for you but what you can do for your planet.
