How's Aloe Hercules, And Aloes Blooming In Late June

The other Aloe 'Hercules', purchased at the same time but got into the ground several years earlier, has grown...weller. Twelve feet tall? Multiple branches, but no flowers yet.
Eventually 'Hercules' may block our view of the distant hills from the front balcony. And eventually bloom, too.
In the meantime, 'Cynthia Gitty' is starting up again. Golden A. megalacantha continues as well.
A. dhufareinsis is opening. This is its first bloom ever. It has a bit of fungal infection--not threatening, just disfiguring.
A. x noblis. A goal is to have at least one Aloe in bloom year round. I should start tracking that.
Hey, that's not an Aloe! It is native to South Africa, though, a hot spot for Aloes. Oscularia deltoides is fabulous foaming out of a pot, but not if I grow it. Dried up in a pot, mine happiest in the ground.
That's not an Aloe, either, but its...Aloe colored. Is that close enough?
