Neutral palmbob On Apr 2, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Small to med sized striped aloe from Nambia, with spiny teeth along leaf margins. Flowers branched and dull pink to rose in spring. Looks a lot like many other striped to spotted aloes- leaves a bit narrorer than most. I personally cannot tell this plant from Aloe maculata, except that it flowers differently and at a different time of the year. Otherwise, could be the exact same plant.
