Positive palmbob On Sep 16, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

light lime green branching, shrub-forming aloe with long, slightly arching leaves with prominent, widely spaced teeth. This is an Angolan species, often found in wooded areas in large colonies on rocky slopes or moderately shaded areas. The one plant I have seen in cultivation in southern California (Huntington Gardens) has grown fairly rapidly into a large shrub and flowers profusely deep, beautiful red, but official descriptions are of scarlet flowers with yellow stripes (not seen this striping in cultivation). Looks a bit like a sparsely leaved, smaller version of Aloe arboescens.
