Neutral palmbob On Mar 21, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Creeping, multistemmed aloe from Central Africa (Tanzania). Bright green to tan, relatively narrow, toothed leaves which tend to 'droop' giving the plant a look like it's melting. It is a cliff hanger in nature. Probably related to Aloe flexilifolia, which is like a giant version of this species on a stalk with red instead of yellow flowers (some forms have red flowers)... but leaf shape and tendency to 'melt' very similar. Neither species are very cold hardy- among the wimpiest of all the aloes when it comes to frost tolerance.
