Aloe haemanthifolia is a critically rare species in its native habitat and very rare also in cultivation. Its natural habitat is a few high mountains in Western Cape, South Africa. It has grey-green leaves in a fan shape, similar to A. plicatilis but smaller and stemless. Because it is adapted to growing in rocky crevices high on mountain tops, this aloe is quite tolerant of cold weather but does require moister and shadier conditions than other Aloes. It flowers at the end of winter.
