Gardeners' Notes:

Positive palmbob On Jan 27, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

This is particulary attractive vigorous 'shrub aloe' (literally a tree aloe, but takes forever to get that tall) with nice red-orange, unbranching flowers in the fall (at least here in So Cal- may flower multiple times- not sure). Leaves are a lime green to somewhat bluish-green that contrast nicely with the flowers. The leaves are finely lined, and have very sharp, orange teeth that face back toward the center of the plant - sharp, but not as bad as those found on the var muirii. Plants in wild tend towards solitary, though suckering forms exist, but plants growing in cultivation tend to be all suckering (either are hybrids, or are clones from the few suckering plants collected in the wild). This form differs primarily from var. murii in having softer, paler leaves with a a bit more flexible, and flowering in the summer to early fall, instead of mid to late winter.
