Gardeners' Notes:

Positive palmbob On Feb 9, 2011, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Turning out to be a relatively fast grower and an easy plant to grow in southern California. Likes to turn on it's side a bit as gets larger. Colors nicely in winter to a orange color overlaying the green background. Plants normally stemless but sometimes forming a pendulant stem up to 1' long. Leaves recurved, stiff and usually colorful. Has typically arching inflorescences with tightly spaces columnar racemes that look a bit like corncobs. Grows on rocky cliffs in Mozambique. Moderately available now in cultivation.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:
