Gardeners' Notes:

This plant actually does pretty well in the desert. The flowers are very attractive and reliable every year. It looks best with some morning sun or filtered light from a shrub or shade cloth. Good potted plant.

Nice smaller turquoise-blue plant that is fairly easy in southern CAlifornia- only gets about 8" tall and has short, fusiform, harmless fleshy leaves. Flowers are also relatively short, on racemes only 8" -12" tall- simple flowers, rarely if ever branched. Makes a great potted Aloe, but can easily get lost in landscaping outdoors.

Relatively cold hardy species- plant in ground that just finished flowering showed no damage whatsoever to freeze here in Los Angeles Jan 07 of 27F... most other aloes did show some damage, and a few turned to total mush.
