Wonderful species to grow if your able to find one. Related in the spicata complex with tauri and vryheidensis. This one differs as its a stemless aloe.

Described by Tom McCoy and John Lavranos back in 2013. They named it in tribute to the late great Barbara Jeppe her aloe Illustrations are invaluable for collectors and botanists in the 1960s and 70s
