Positive palmbob On Sep 13, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Stemless spotted or unspotted medium-sized aloe- sort of a slow-grower and offsets slowly. Leaves sort of wedge-shaped and flattish with very small teeth. Flowers small/simple red-orange in late fall to early winter.

Multiple varieties of this species, one that seems to be taxonomically a huge challenge thanks to its wide variability and similarty to many other Malagasy aloes, some which are probably just forms of this plant. Aloes immalotensis and madecassa may actually be forms of this (see Aloe of Madagascar by Castillon and Castillon 2010).

Temps into the mid 20s do not seem to pose any problem to this species in southern California.
