Some Aloe species are past peak flowering, already. They typically start flowering in December here. Most species of Aloe are winter-flowering.

Typically, the SF Bay Area Aloe species are about two months behind the flowering here.

Yep,there is a trunking A.ferox near the wife's church. I posted it last year on GOY in bloom. Can't remember what month.

I really like A. ferox! Aloe thaskii is another one of my favorites. It grows to 25 plus feet tall.

I saw that Aloe- its in bloom. The sun was right behind it..I couldn't take a pic from the car.

Thraskii is a beast. It reminds me of a African Water Buffalo or maybe Brahma bull.

Aloe traskii is a very tall plant; however, Aloe bainsii is the tallest and largest one that grows in California (as far as I know).

Here's a photo of Aloe traskii at the Bahia Hotel in Mission Bay, San Diego.

Here's Aloe barberae (bainsii):
