palmbob's Journal: A lat ? Aloe lateritia probably not front rock area

Initial Notes:

Fairly beefy mail order plant from Aloe Institutes... Put out front near Aloe plicatilis in rock area- noted the soil was pretty dry there so watered well today. Looks like a typical spotted aloe, all the way to the necrotic leaf tips... wonder what synonyms it has. Looks just like the nearby Aloe maculata... and flower looks identical, shape and timing, at least at the beginning.

thought for a while there this was maybe an error and was actually aloe maculata.. .but flowering this month (same exact time as A maculata)... but flowers quite different... A maculata flowers look like pom-poms, while these are spaced out along the racemes.
