Johan, I've added this to the Aloes mission and I'll add other pictures soon. Southern California is a hotbed of aloe activity!

jprat001 thanks for the ID. It is arborescens. It is also called Red Hot Poker even though the kniphofia is too...that's why latin names are so helpful!

This one could be Aloe arborescens. the red hot poker (kniphofia) plant is a separate plant with the same kind of blooms (they have the same subfamily as aloes i believe).
