The leaves are narrow triangular, up to 250 mm long and 40 mm wide at the base, then curved gracefully above and inwards giving the neat and rounded appearance. The leaf is a peculiar brown-green, which turns a pinkish-red when exposed to prolonged periods of drought and intense heat. The leaves are sturdy and have a surface that is rough to the touch. The abundant large black thorns are singularly arranged along the keel and the margins of the leaves. The thorns at the leaf bases may be shorter and whitish.

Inflorescences are usually simple up to 1 m (40″) high, with a single elongated rosette about 200 (8″) x 80 mm (3″). The flowers are tubular, bright red but yellow after opening, and bloom in winter (May-June). As with other aloe, the seeds are usually winged, small, up to 3 mm and produced in abundance in the fruit capsules that come in three when ripe. Seeds normally ripen around August-September.
