This aloe has the most beautiful leaf form - broad base with long narrow tip that reminds me of a music instrument. I grow them from seeds three years ago.

Neutral palmbob On Feb 23, 2007, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

This is an Arabian aloe that, like many other Arabian aloes, is a fleshy, pale colored- upright-leaved, nearly toothless species with some irregular and inconsistent spotting. I have found it to be a slow grower in southern California. Not seen one offset, so no idea if it does that. Flowers are a dull pink in spring to early summer- simple flowers with 0-2 branches about 1'-2' tall.
