Positive palmbob On Feb 2, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Very large ground aloe (stems sometimes up to a foot long) that is usually planted in masses (suckers, too). It's a pretty large aloe up to 3' across with large, pale green to light green to blue green leaves with attractive flecking of white near their bases. This form is much larger and more vigorous than the 'regular' A camperi (which looks more like A arborescens in habit and size of leaves). In fact this plant looks so unlike Aloe camperi, it is hard for me to believe the two are in any way related. Flowers in early to mid spring large flowers of red orange, turning to bright yellow from the bottom of the simple flower spike towards the top.
