Gardeners' Notes:

pale green smooth-leaved (no teeth) stemless aloe from Saudia Arabia. New to me, and can't find much about it's growth rate or eventual size. will let you know as I find out myself. Seems quite hardy in southern California and growing nicely. This is turning out to be a wonderful plant... so user friendly.

Had this nearly two years now, and plant has grown slowly and dependably... no problems whatsoever... color of leaves has remained exactly the same regardless of season or temps. Solitary, attractive gold to red flower in late fall on a raceme barely longer than the upright leaves. Flower only lasted a week. Subsequent freeze of unusual harshness for southern California (Jan 07) did not affect this plant in the least... handled temps around 27F without any visible damage.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Apache Junction, Arizona

Phoenix, Arizona
Tempe, Arizona
Bonsall, California
