Positive palmbob On May 29, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Rare species from S AFrica. Succulent rosette of short, thick, stiff, slightly arched dark green leaves heavily peppered with white spots (giving a pale green effect). This is one of my favorite species. Stays relatively small and very neat, ornamental look. Flowers a deep red-orange in spring and look like G glomerata flowers, though inflorescence upright as opposed to lateral in orientation.
