Aloe andongensis var. repens

This is a neat, smallish, suckering, shrubby Angolan aloe with rosettes only about 6" in diameter and lots of spots/speckles, and closely spaced teeth. Flowers are reddish-orange tapering to yellow.

Two images of separate plants, both labelled Aloe andongensis at Brisbane Botanic Gardens. They appear very different from each other. Is one mislabelled?

First plant could be really happy Aloe andongensis var. repens- probably an exceptional climate there... second plant I think is the type species (not a variety of it)... but think both are Aloe andongensis... I would start a new entry here and put that second photo in Aloe andongensis
