Neutral palmbob On Apr 9, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Kenyan aloe with bright green, narrow, toothy, somewhat recurved leaves and multiple tall, thin stems. Flowers simple and orange to red-orange, typically in mid to late summer. Seems to be a somewhat variable species, relatively common in cultivation, though suspect some of the wider-leafed forms might have some Aloe arborescens in them. I put this at 9b, since it survives in that climate, but it often gets badly damaged during frosts (one of the least cold-tolerant of the Aloes)... anything below 28F... but it grows back well.

Regional...
