The history and natural distribution of Aloe elegans are discussed and the species is described both in habitat in Ethiopia and in cultivation.
Currently the species is considered to be endemic to north-central Ethiopia and Eritrea. However, Plants off the World online (Kew) gives a broader distribution including W. Sudan, so the endemic status of this species may be under threat.
