A rare, small clustering Aloe with narrow, pale green leaves that have smooth margins. The inflorescence is unbranched and holds greenish or yellow flowers in a compact terminal head. Aloe linearifolia is native to grasslands from Mpumalanga to the eastern Cape Province in South Africa between 100 an 2000 m. Although widely distributed, it is threatened by overgrazing and farming of its native haitat. In cultivation, it is one of the cold hardier Aloe and does well in a range of temperate climates but is rarely available.
