The flowers of Aloe humilis grow in lax, unbranched racemes that reach 35 cm in height. The perianth or flower tube that will nod once it opens is long, (up to 4 cm in length) and narrow. It bulges slightly in the middle and does not flare at the mouth.
Flower colour is scarlet, orange or (rarely) yellowish. The tips of the buds are green, sometimes turning creamy yellow in part when they open. Up to about 20 flowers are found per inflorescence. The anthers reach the perianth mouth without protruding. Flowering happens late in winter to early spring.
In this photo only the imbricate bracts are visible upon the developing inflorescence, bulging over the hidden flowers. The bracts taper to acute points and attenuate near their tips. Their margins are white, while dark parallel lines run longitudinally down the central parts of their surfaces (Jeppe, 1969; Van Wyk and Smith, 2003; Reynolds, 1974).
