The flowers of Aloe hereroensis grow in a short, dense raceme that is flat-topped. This is achieved by the pedicels emerging lower down in the raceme growing longer, their flowers positioned on the outside, the inner flowers short-stalked. This floral structure is called a corymb.
All the buds point up, while the open flowers may become heavy for the pedicels and sag into pendulous mode. In the centre, the youngest buds are still beaten in length by the tips of their subtending bracts. These bracts form a small wiry cone above the green-tipped buds like ash-blond hair lacking a comb.
The generally red, mostly scarlet perianths or six-segmented corollas, the visible flowers, are about 3 cm long. They are cylindrical to slightly triangular from the keel bulges on their outer three segments.
The perianth narrows in its throat with an upturned, pointy pout of the mouth, especially early on. The inner segments have more white towards their tips and darker green keels than the outer ones.
The dark anthers become exserted but not far (Reynolds, 1974; Van Wyk and Smith, 2003).
