What is this aloe?

Recommended Posts

Hello. Can somebody possibly identify this aloe species for me (photo below).  Second question:   Is it cold-hardy?  Will it take 28 Fahrenheit with only minor damage?  

 

Thank you in advance!

Looks a little ‘fibrosa’ like (or one of many hybrids) to me. I’m no expert, don’t listen to me. 
If it were, however, I’d estimate it around 25-28F .

Hello.  I googled ALOE FIBROSA and it did not seem to exist.  Is there a different name for that aloe species?  

Does anyone else know?  Thanks!

Exists, https://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/62838/       

Don't think that's it though..  Might look through Aloe - related articles made by Palmbob over on D.G.  to narrow down the list of possibilities.

OK thanks.  I will take a look. By the way, my new aloe in the photo above has two influorescences with orange blooms and is trying to grow a little trunk that is now covered in green pups.... just in case that helps with the identification. Thanks!

I know the plant, it’s here in small numbers in South Texas and the only name I’ve ever heard it called is the Florida aloe :huh:. The old mom-and-pop nurseries would sometimes have it back in the day. It seems able to bounce back from cold but is not in the same league as something like Aloe maculata. It’s similar in size to Aloe ‘Rooikappie’ but doesn’t bloom as often.
