Some confusion exists regarding the application of the name Aloe ×nobilis Haw. to what is arguably the most widely cultivated, named Aloe L. hybrid in Mediterranean Europe. We show that the name is to be applied to a low-growing, multi-rosette hybrid that likely originated in Europe and does not occur naturally in South Africa. The name Aloe ×nobilis Haw. is neotypified with a Salm-Reifferscheid-Dyck plate published in 1863.
