Aloe Plants to Identify

Can you identify this succulent? photo by Alma Bye of Virginia

Can you identify this succulent?

Alma Bye from Virginia sent in this photo and says; I know this is a succulent, but can you tell me it's name?"

P.S. I've just found a wikipedia page that lists apparently all (really?) aloe types of plants and has some photos and links to more details on many of them. It looks like a good reference page: List of Aloes species

I've already gathered brief descriptions of a variety of plants from the aloes family or genre, on this page: Aloe Plants. I don't know these plants personally, but the descriptions may help you to identify the aloe plants you want to identify now. I know I would enjoy getting to see many of these in person, but I'm not holding my breath for it.

If you live in a part of the world where these aloes grow like weeds around your locale, I would consider it a great favour if you would take some photos and send them to me. I'd be very pleased to put your photos beside the right descriptions if it is clear that they are of that particular type.

P.S.S. You can find some comments from other visitors, helping to identify this aloe plant, if you go further down the page to the section titled, "What Other Visitors Have Said." Check some of the the other pages as some of the descriptions and the photos can help each other out.

Note: if you think you can give helpful information on a submission here, try to be specific about which one you are contributing to, so I don't mix them up. Thanks.
