Aloe babatiensis Christian & Verdoorn


Aloe babatiensis is a native aloe of the higher elevations (5000'-7000') of Tanzania with an inflorescence of bright yellow flowers and long narrow green leaves armed with sharp teeth. Its species name presumably refers to its location at Babati in the Mbulu District of the Northern Province of Tanzania, and so might be called the Babati aloe. It can become a moderately-sized shrub.
