Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral palmbob On Mar 1, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Clustering Madagascan terrestrial aloe with small but colorful flowers in winter. Leaves mottled/spotted and very stiff forming rosettes about 5-6" in diameter. A bit cold tender- much better as a potted plant than a landscaping specimen. This plant is one of the most commonly used aloes in hybridization, with many named hybrids sold commonly in nurseries.

Chandler, Arizona
