description for "Cacti and Succulents: aloe variegata "

The leaf margins of Aloe Variegata have tiny blunt teeth that with the entire margin are a white color that stands out well against the dark green color of the leaf. The leaves also have short longitudinally arranged white spots on upper and lower surfaces that often line up in horizontal bands, giving this plant the common name of Tiger Aloe. The spots are also said to resemble those on a partridge breast, which gives this plant its most used common name. The plant will get red highlights that turns the deep green to a more brown color when the Aloe Variegata is drought stressed.
