palmbob's Journal: A brevis Aloe breviscapa front lawn area

  • Status: planted in ground at new home

Initial Notes:

Got this aloe in 04, and been in community pot since, with A buhrii and Euphorbia. Will plant out eventually. Put in planter 9 where it did great and bloomed for years (THOUGH blooms did not match species description well- upright and pink instead of lateral and red... oh well).

Moved out front 6-09 when planter 9 dismantled

flowers are ending up looking disappointingly pink, just like all the other spotted aloes... oops... is this the wrong identification?? Other photo I saw of this had such brilliant red flowers (on the Aloestudies site)

seed ready to be sent off to someone who will, I hope, be sending me some new aloes soon. We'll see how that goes.

hmmm, not sure if this is just really late signs of cold damage from over 2 months ago, or if the changing season to suddenly warm caught it off guard.... it's gonna be OK, but sure doesn't look good.
