Neutral palmbob On Aug 19, 2011, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

South African plant with large, smoothish, recurved leaves growing on trailing stems up to 1'. Solitary to suckering (which is how I've only seen this plant), this heavily spotted aloe seems quite different than the typical maculate aloes, yet Carter, Lavranos et al lump this in with them. Flowers are on very open (spread out), very long/tall inflorescences that seem to grow almost more laterally than upright. Good plant for pots (will grow out and hang out of them ornamentally).
