Gardeners' Notes:

Positive palmbob On Jan 24, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Relatively attractive aloe with dark red slightly branched flowers in fall. Somewhat of a large aloe but ordinary habit- holds lots of leaves and tends to lean a bit with age, but doesn't really start to 'tree'. Slow to sucker. Has dull green leaves but with heat and sun tend to pinken towards the tips- some plants can develop an ornamental deep red-orange coloration of the leaves in high heat, cold and low waterfall. Flowers strikingly deep red and capitate. Good for xeriscape gardens for fall color. Kenyan species
