Aloe (sinkatana x hereroensis) x pubescens

I cross pollinated an aloe pubescens in my yard with one of my hybrids an aloe sinkatana x hereroensis. This plant is one of the offspring. I've had three offspring flower so far. One has yellow flowers, one has orange flowers and then there was this one? It has a lot more fuzz than the pollen parent, Aloe pubescens...which may be an aloe trichosantha, but the two are so similar (pubescens and trichosantha) they will probably be lumped together someday as trichosantha. The pollination was carefully done, the seed parent's flowers were covered each time after I hand pollinated them so there was no interference in the cross by bees or hummingbirds. Interesting how the offspring of this cross are so variable. I think I'll keep all the remaining seedlings that the 2007 freeze didn't kill!
