Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Porphyrostachys On Aug 30, 2009, Porphyrostachys from Portland, OR (Zone 8b) wrote:

Great Aloe fro the Arizona desert! It tolerates the heat, frost (19F) and a good amount of sun even in summer. The flowers rise every year reliably, sometimes more than once. A group of the many color forms is very attractive.

Positive palmbob On Jan 11, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Native to Namibia, this is a pale blue-green aloe with white linear flecking along the leaves. The leaves are edged with sharp but small spines. Excellent landscape aloe as has a ghostly appearance in full sun. Colors can vary a bit from pale brown, to deep pink. Flowers orange in the winter.

Plant seems quite hardy to the bottom of its hardiness range, with plants showing no damage to temps in the mid 20s in southern California.
