Bloom: Aloe or Haworthia?

Tiffany, purpleinopp GardenWeb, Z8b Opp, AL(8B AL)June 13, 2014

The leaves went undecided, are these flowers obvious? They don't match any of the pics I am finding of either Aloe or Haw, but admit I didn't look too hard, value the opinions here more. TIA!

Looks more Haw than Aloe, but can we see the plant as well?

TY! Wishing even more that I could find the pic from last fall when the leaves weren't sunburned from being suddenly thrust outside. (I know, shouldn't do that, we moved in April, it was madness!)

Today:
Stalk at top (aged a couple weeks from first pic above, blooms are finished.)

Yes, Aloe. I think Aloe bellatula, one of the prettiest blooms (IMHO).

I think I've got the same plant, that name sounds familiar too. Great houseplant - tough as nails, fills the pot with those long, twisty leaves, and flowers several times a year. I've had it for years and years.

That sounds cool. Agreed, this IS a tough plant. Surprised I haven't 'seen' you in house plant forum, sounds like you have some interesting ones!

There's only so many hours in the day... This site eats up enough time as it is :)
