Aloe chortoliriodes

Here's one Aloe you won't see very often. Picked this a few years ago when I visited San Diego at a small C&S nursery. I've read it only flowers after a fire. It's hardy here to 28f and painfully slow growing, doesn't help matters being staged in such a shallow dish. The pot is 1" deep by 7" wide and is made with Cassius Basalitic clay and was fired to ^04.
