Positive palmbob On Feb 17, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Have to say this plant looks a lot like the 'real' Aloe rubroviolacea. Maybe as a mature plant not as violet in full sun, but as a seedlng, has a strong violet, purply leaf coloration. Very neat, attractive and unusual looking aloe. Sort of crawls along the ground as it grows. Stems can get as long as 12 feet, and usually grows downhill. Flowers red, orange or gold in late winter. RAcemes compressed downward and numerous on short inflorescences. Rare in cultivation but becoming much more available. One of the more stunning landscape aloes for Southern California. Needs full sun to be appreciated best.

Saudi Arabian species.
