Aloe x principis is a large evergreen succulent perennial forming a small tree bearing rosettes of dark blue-green leaves on several trunks. In winter to spring, a branched inflorescence rises above the foliage to display dense spikes of brilliant, scarlet to orange, tubular flowers, brightening up the dull winter garden. Vigorous, Aloe x principis results from a natural cross between Aloe ferox and Aloe arborescens
