Aloe dorotheae is an eye-catching succulent that forms rosettes of shiny, yellowish-green leaves that turn orange-red in full sun. It grows up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall, freely producing offsets to form large clumps of rosettes that grow on sprawling or decumbent stems. Leaves are fleshy, recurved, with teeth along the margins and often with some white spots. Flowers are tubular, orange-red or yellow with green tips. They appear in winter on usually unbranched, up to 2 foot (60 ct) long flower stalks.
