Initial Notes:

Got several of these in 03- put some in ground at rental home, but saved some for here... but then put them in top of a strawberry pot- have been growing great since. Probably should put them in a planter someday.

Decided to dump the strawberry pots and plant Sempervivums in them. So planted all the aloes out front in hot, blazing 110F sun... probably a big mistake.. but a week later this one still OK. Planted on the west side of the mound near the Encephalartos kisambo

I think it might recover, but this plant was pretty severely injured by freeze this last weekend... at least it did better than the nearby flexifolia which was melted to the ground

Most of this plant is mush, but lowest stem seems OK

flowering season about over but frost season isn't... plant getting a bit discolored from repeated frosts... but better than melting it to the ground like last year
