  • Posted by Baja_Costero (Baja California - Zone 11b) on Jun 30, 2019 3:13 PM concerning plant:
    South African hybrid aloe which closely resembles Aloe x spinosissima, a hybrid between A. humilis and A. arborescens. Not patented. Like spinosissima, this is a small, blue-green plant with sharp marginal teeth and conical racemes. Frequently listed online as Aloe x humilis, which is a misnomer, since humilis is a species and not a hybrid.
