Aloe angelica Pole-Evans

Aloe angelica, aka williespoort aloe or williespoortaalwyn in Afrikaans, is restricted to the Limpopo or Northern Province region of South Africa, specifically the Soutpansberg and Blouberg Mountains. It is vegetatively similar to Aloe thrakii and Aloe alooides, having usually a single stem up to 12' in height, but occasionally being branched. The smooth leaves armed with small sharp teeth are spreading to recurved, with old dried leaves remaining around the upper part of the trunk. The complex much-branched inflorescence contains many short tubular flowers budding red but turning yellow in age. This species blooms typically in June.
