palmbob's Journal: A alo sp. BGR blue-green red-toothed Aloe alooides front lawn

Initial Notes:

For a long time I didn't even know if this was an aloe or an agave... thinK i got it from Mesa Gardens, but no clue what it is. In center, front of P2 near middle.

Then, as it grew huge in P2 I realized what it was suddenly. moved it out front in it's own circular planter in 11-07. Flowering for first time in 2009

turning into a really nice Aloe... too bad no idea what it is. Does sort of look a tad like a wide leaf version of Aloe divariacata... but probably not.

aug 06 being 'attacked' by the nearby Euphorbia flanaganii... seems to be losing the red teeth characteristic

looking a bit less blue-green these days... but nice. Need to find a name for this one.

seems like it's getting large enough that I should be able to identify it soon

It suddenly occured to me, since the other aloe I had originally identified as Aloe alooides in planter 2 is most certainly not that, and this one is looking a LOT like Aloe alooides... that it probably is my missing plant. Not in a good spot... looking for some place out front to move it to.

So, moved this plant out front... it looks way bigger now that it's all in its own spot... wow.
