Gardeners' Notes:

Positive palmbob On Feb 12, 2005, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Striking cross with very dark red, almost black, leaves and reddish edges with small, soft teeth. Suckering mostly stemless aloe. Not sure how cold sensitive it is. Has flowers in the fall that are on extremely long stallks. Flowers sort of simple and have yellow, orange and light green in them.

This is hybrid is created by crossing Aloe haworthioides with Aloe bakeri, and crossing that hybrid with Aloe descoingsiiX Aloe bakeri X calcairophylla

Plants do well outdoors in southern California in partial shade as well as full sun, though seem to prefer the partial shade better (grow a bit faster and have longer stems in that situation at least)
