IMG_0962

For hundreds of kilometers in the North West of the country, this aloe was flowering in the veld, its orange-red inflorescence heads taking a different route to its many cousin species who hold their flowers high-and-mighty in the air. This one’s a lateral, grovelling fellow, a side-swiper, a shoot from the hip type. It’s Aloe claviflora (Kanonaalwyn or Kraalaalwyn to the locals.)
