Neutral palmbob On Feb 16, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Smaller single stem blue-green aloe from SAfrica, Zimbawe and Swaziland. Has small, but sharp black teeth along the margins. Tends to be distichous as a seedling, but eventually forms a perfect rosette. This Aloe looks a LOT like Aloe suprafoliata, as a seedling as well as an adult. Flowers themselves are identical, but the racemes in this species are always branched and much taller (up to 6' tall, while Aloe suprafoliata flowers grow maybe 2'). Eventually forms a trunk up to 3' tall. Not threatened.
