Gardeners' Notes:

Positive palmbob On Jan 28, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

The plant is sort of Aloe vera-like in its shape with soft, succulent (though the leaves do have some short, slightly sharp teeth along them), dull green upright leaves that taper to a point... but the flowers in winter are quite startling with a deep red at the top of the flower spike eventually turning to a bright yellow starting at the bottom of the spike working their way up with time. A clump of A lutescens make wonderful landscape color in a warm, dry garden. In the cool of winter some of the leaves take on a reddish color.
