Gardeners' Notes:

Positive poeciliopsis On Jan 23, 2015, poeciliopsis from Phoenix, AZ wrote:

Central Phoenix -- Aloe grandidentata is an aggressive spreader, but fortunately pups pull out easily. Mine is in the ground, but under winter cover so I can't say how frost-hardy it is. It gets monthly watering in summer and none in winter, and is in full shade in winter and strong afternoon sun in summer. Despite these tough conditions it still grows well, although blooms infrequently.

Not exactly stunning for an Aloe, but it handles the heat, sun and frosts of the Arizona desert better than most. It's also good for erosion control if you let it run amok. The flowers are reliable every year.

Club-shaped flowers. Freestate, NCape, NWest provinces of SA. Rosette resemble some forms of Zebrina.

Neutral palmbob On Feb 3, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Small zebra-looking aloe that looks about like 20 other zebra-looking species. THis one has dark green leaves with a lot of linear white spoting and pink-orange flowers in winter. Small plant. Not a profuse suckerer (in my experience). But really, there is nothing terribly unique about this one.
