Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral palmbob On Dec 23, 2010, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

currently (2010) this aloe is listed separately from Aloe capmanambatoensis, which is found in the same areas of northern Madagascar. Flowers are similar and general look of plant is similar, too, with this one having narrower, smoother leaves, but with similar teeth and flecking. Probably it will be lumped with the other aloe soon, though.
