palmbob's Journal: A sp B P Brown Powys Aloe congdonii- probably not back planter 2

  • Member: palmbob

  • Status: planted in ground at new home

Initial Notes:

Got this last week... not sure what it really is, but from a cactus/succulent member/grower, so could be the real thing. Nice turquoisy-green plant in 4" pot. Put in middle edge of planter 2

Plant officially named A congdonii sometime 2006? That's when I discovered that at least.
