RatingAuthorContent
Positive palmbob On Dec 28, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

narrow-stemmed, suckering, thin, spotted/striped-leafed aloe from Mozambique into South Africa, with almost comically long, sparsely flowered flower-spikes. Flowers always seem to fall and drape over surrounding vegetation- rarely able to support their own weight. Sort of gangly, awkward looking species but with good winter color in full sun (reddish). Otherwise is a dark green to maroon green color to leaves . Leaves very shiny and almost plastic-like to the touch.
