Gardeners' Notes:

This plant grows well in full sun in Southern California. It is easily rooted in potting soil with warmth.

Neutral palmbob On Sep 24, 2005, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

small but not markedly ornamental brown, thin-leaved aloe. This a branching, suckering and clumping species, wonderful for pots or small, elevated areas of a well manicured landscape. Flowers nice and here in California bloom repeatedly. Flowers simple and are half yellow, half orange. Not seen a red flower anywhere.

This a Madagascan native often used in hybridization. Though common in cultivation, by 2011 this plant is extinct in the wild.

Sorry to say, but the genus Aloe belongs to the family Liliaceae!

Editor's Note: At the present time, the Aloe genus is more commonly classified in the Aloaceae family than the older Liliaceae family. The Plants Database editors have decided to place all Aloe entries in this newer family.
