Gardeners' Notes:

Positive thistlesifter On Dec 8, 2006, thistlesifter from Vista, CA wrote:

Native to Somalia from near mile-high elevation.

Several thumb-sized seedlings of this species went into the beds in early May. I believe they will be flowering when their flowering cycle begins in mid-winter.

Somewhat unique starfish-like form.

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

Smaller, stiff, armed, glossy, sometimes spotted (particularly when young) and fat-leaved Somalian Aloe with not terribly showy yellowy flowers in late winter.
