Gardeners' Notes:

Positive palmbob On Mar 23, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Solitary Madagascan species with stems about 1 foot tall It has lime green to reddish, recurved, channeled leaves. Leaves are very smooth, shiny and almost plastic like in texture. One plant I've seen (see first photo) has rosette 2' across. Flowers a reddish orange and very slightly fuzzy (possibly only Madagascan species with fuzzy flowers). It is a striking species and (I hope) will make an excellent landscape plant for southern California. Worries about its cold tolerance have not been allayed yet.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Mesa, Arizona
Spring Valley, California
Vista, California
