Aloe agenticauda


A distinctive feature of this species is their upward curving leaves, similar to A. asperiflora, A. claviflora and A. pachygaster. However, this is a much taller plant than the others mentioned. Usually restricted to regions from Rehoboth to Bethanie and just west of Helmeringhausen, another colony has been discovered as far south as the Tiras Mountains, north of Aus.

A. agenticauda may grow as individual plants or in clusters, with the 'silver-tailed' inflorescence expected to grow up to 1m. The large, shrubby plant has numerous small brown thorns. Flowering time is from late August to the end of September and this species is known to be able to withstand frost and cold. Smaller plants are often confused with A. pachygaster, which also occur in the Tiras Mountain region.
