Positive palmbob On Mar 1, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Kind of a tender aloe and not a great one for landscaping unless you have a tiny rock garden (gets lost in the landscape). Small aloe with very unusual coloration- like a dark purply blue to slate grey coloration- spread out flat on profile and many small, thin, warty leaves. Looks a bit like A humilis but flatter, and darker and eventually forms a stem. From Madagascar. Flowers simple on tall thin racemes (usually one at a time, but multiple flowers per season not unusual).

Not a good plant for areas where it may freeze. Without overhead protection, temps around 27F will kill this plant, even mature, well established individuals.
