I love the colour of the flowers, very nice.
This plant looks 'leggy', does it just get fresh growth at the top ?

Louise1:

Aloe species only have leaves at the ends of the branches...they don't grow leggy...however, the growth can be sparse which is typical. This species of Aloe can grow very tall to more than 50 feet / 15 meters tall and has many branches.

Are they a long or short lived species ?

Aloe bainsii in its native Africa can grow to 70 feet / 22 meters tall and live for many centuries.
