Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Porphyrostachys On Dec 8, 2010, Porphyrostachys from Portland, OR (Zone 8b) wrote:

Aloe perrieri has been amusingly described to me as "Aloe bellatula on steroids." That's probably the best description of this species I know of. It's very much like Aloe bellatula, just a larger plant with somewhat darker green leaves, a slightly different texture to the leaves and a bit more obvious teeth. The flowers seem to bloom over a longer period, are larger and part of a more dense raceme than is found on Aloe bellatula.
Aloe perrieri is frequently sold as Aloe bellatula mostly because the two are so similar and unless you have the two side-by-side, you'd likely not see any immediate difference.
