I think this crowded beauty is Aloe conifera. (But then again, I just can’t tell.) I bought it at a Ruth Bancroft Garden plant sale. It used to have a very complementary Euphorbia tirucalli next to it, but I always lose that particular species of Euphorbia when it gets cold. Maybe I’ll get more and try again. Or maybe I’ll never allow it in the garden again. Maybe I’ll have some breakfast now.
