Gardeners' Notes:

RatingAuthorContent
Positive palmbob On Mar 1, 2007, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Unusual toothless aloe with thick, strap-like leaves with rounded ends. Leaves only 1/4-1/2" wide but quite long. Smaller species, from Madagascar. Once acclimated and growing a year or so, becomes an aggressive offsetter. Flowers in fall on short peduncle barely above the tops of the leaves. Flower is solitary and raceme 'head shaped' with only a few flowers (10 or so). Seems to have no problem with full sun and grows much slower and looks sadder in shade.
