This isn't an unusual aloe, but it's a lovely, easy to grow aloe - Aloe sinkatana. I understand it's hardy in the San Francisco Bay area of California but I've had no indication that's it's truly cold hardy in our area of the Pacific Northwest of the United States. And if it can withstand our cold, it would need excellent drainage to survive our wet winters. Nevertheless, I may try one this winter to check it out.
But even if that doesn't work out, it's still a nice pot subject and well worth growing.
