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

Nicely tolerant of the Arizona deserts, it withstands a good amount of morning to mid-day sun, flowers reliably and even withstood the 19F snap of 2007. Very attractive pattern upon the leaves, especially when blushing under stress.

Positive RWhiz On Feb 9, 2006, RWhiz from Spring Valley, CA (Zone 10a) wrote:

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

Positive palmbob On Mar 20, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

One of the more attractive stemless linearly striped aloes. This one has closely spaced, very sharp spines along the bright green leaf edges and showy. Flowers usually single but one of the most branched inflorescences of all the Aloes with a dozen or more flowers on a single stalk. Flowers somewhat globoid in shape and reddish orange with a hint of green sometimes- spectacular flowers!
