You may be right Heidi. People can mistake a redhot poker (Kniphofia) for aloe if they have very little information to go by. My suggestion was also based on the closely placed bracts on the flower stalk. Red hot poker stalks have bracts but appear smoother ?? and leaves are much narrower. I must have a close look at both next time... : )@ Jemma, do you have photos of the whole plant ? Also, redhot poker flowers are usually more tightly packedI might be wrong but ....
Thank you , Heidi. i guess these come in a variety of colors too?
The leaves in the background may be aloe, but those flowers don't belong to the leaves. See my suggestion above. I have one in my backyard. Love these!
going by the broad leaves in the background, I think this is an Aloe.
