I don't know about red, but some have distinctly pinkish flowers, nothing to get too excited about. I'd just admire the fantastic spines.

The Aloinopsis name looks right, although it might also have another name. No flowers on mine though. And my T. hugo-schlechteri is dead. I do have this though, something nice and easy to grow.
