This is actually an Aloe Tree. Aloe barberae (syn. Aloe bainesii) is the botanical name. It is native to South Africa so I am not entirely sure about the winter cold temps in Las Vegas. Depending on the location of where its planted (protected from wind, etc), it should be alright, but some local nursery research would be worthwhile .

Soil wise it should be fine because It prefers well-drained soil, especially on a slope. Other growing conditions: It can tolerate some shade when small. It should not be planted directly next to any buildings as its trunk and roots become enormous.. Great 'architectural tree however.

Shawn Gauthier added this to 16 Amazing Home Pools
Unusual things are always to be found in faraway places, so why not add an unusual element to your pool? Every evening can be spent cozying up to your tree island and enjoying an incredible sunset.
Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Tree Aloe
Before you plant. While tree aloe is slow growing, it is certain to reach massive proportions eventually, including its trunk and root system. Make sure not to plant it too close to any buildings or structures. Native to tropical climates, tree aloe is frost tender and hardy to around 25 degrees Fahrenheit, preferring sandy, well-drained soils.
