Aloe aristata or Aristaloe aristata is a species of aloe, belonging to the Xanthorrhoeaceae family.

Aristata means "long tip" or "beard", and designates the characteristic that this Aloe presents that with a lack of water, closes the leaves upon itself, thus reducing  the volume of the leaves to resist transpiration.


Originally from South Africa, like other aloes, this variety can be found naturally even in neighboring countries.


With ten to fifteen cm rosettes, it is considered a small species ideal for vases. It is propagated by dividing the shoots that are born at the base, producing proportionally more shoots in a small pot or in poorer soil.


It blooms in spring, producing stems about 75 cm tall.
