Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral palmbob On Jan 30, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

A smaller blue-green leaved aloe with small white spots all over and itty bitty teeth along the leaf margins. Leaves are narrow but thick and have a nice pinkish coloration near the tips in hot sun. Flowers are simple and not too spectacular. Suckers vigorously. In the wild this plant grows on cliffs. Easy to grow and good for small pots.
