Aloe variegata is endemic to the semi-desert areas of South Africa and southern Namibia. This attractive dwarf Aloe is also known as Partridge Breast Aloe, Kanniedood (Afr), Bontaalwyn (Afr.)and Tiger Aloe.
The plants flower in late winter to early spring.
Propagation is from seed or suckers that are formed freely near the base of the plant.
Although the habitat of Aloe variegata often overlaps with other members of the genus, hybrids in nature are not common. I have personally seen hybrids of Aloe variegata and Aloe microstigma .
