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

Not crazy about desert, summer sun, but handles the winter sun just fine. This species wasn't very hardy in the 2007 freeze, but somehow came through despite the severe damage. The flowers are worth growing this species for, even if you have to keep it near your home and allow it only morning sun. The plants here are kept under a shade cloth in summer that's removed in winter.

Positive palmbob On Dec 7, 2003, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

This is one of the more strikingly colored aloes and looks great in a succulent garden- in full sun it will sometimes have pink-red leaf tips on it's otherwise turquoise leaves. Plants not in flower resemble Aloe globulogemma, but the flowers are VERY different. Flowers mid winter multibranched with small red flowers at tip of each branch. From South Africa.
