recently received a seedling mail order of this plant- has flattened, pale green leaves and already fairly attractive. Madagascan low elevation aloe (though surprisingly hardy considering). Grows into a branching shrub of open rosettes. In my climate (zone 9b southern California) this plant is somewhat intolerant of full sun- does much better in partial day sun to no direct sun at all.

Not much experience with the plant, as it is new in my collection.
