Aloe broomii. This is perhaps one of my favorites when it comes to aloes. You just gotta love those mean teeth.

Nice plants, ladies! Dawn- the leaves on your broomii are a lot wider at the bases than my b's are. I like the look!

Paracelsus, I love your aloes. They are so healthy looking.

Jen, I like the wider leaves so when I saw this it became a 'must have' for me.

Denise, Nice, especially your A. karasbergensis. How cute is that.

Thanks for sharing,
Dawn

My favorite at the moment is Partridge Breast Aloe, A. variegata.

I don't have too many aloes but would like to collect alot more. I really like that A. karasbergensis Denise. And that Aloe polyphylla is gorgeous! Wow!

Here's my favorite aloe, hands down. Aloe globuligemma, absolutely fantastic blooms, every year in the dead of winter. Yes, they grow sideways, parallel to the ground.

So much my favorite that it has been the backgroud to my desktop for 3 years.

RE: Aloe Plants

para - that a. polyphylla is stunning! that goes on the must have list for sure!
all of the aloes here are outstanding. i am always amazed at the variety in succulents, in growth habit, coloration and texture. tropicals can seem so bland in comparison, relying on bloom color for their variety. JMO :-)

RE: Aloe Plants

Sorry about that Buck and sjv. I haven't a clue as to how I managed that. Buck, The flowers on that aloe is just magnificent. How long have you had that beauty?

RE: Aloe Plants

Great pics everyone! I also think the flowers of the Aloe globuligemma are spectacular! Here's a few of mine. I've got several that are new and not photographed yet, but that will be done in the spring.

Dawn, your A. broomii might be var. tarkaensis. Its leaves are broader than mine, which is the common variety.

A group of youngsters all together. When they get bigger, I'll give them a pot of their own.

Forgot one!

Oops! I forgot to post a pic of my favorite, which is Aloe karasbergensis. The stunning beauty of mature specimens is really something to look forward to when raising one of these babies!

RE: Aloe Plants

The Aloe globuligemma pictured are at the Jurupa Mountains Cultural Center in Riverside, CA. They have a large (6-acres or so) garden of succulent plants, divided mainly into a wonderful planting of African plants (mainly aloes) and Amercian plants (mainly Baja).

The main gardens were planted in the late 1960's and early 70's with collected plants. The A. globuligemma is part of that garden. Seedlings from that plant will be available in their nursery by summer 2006.

Their web site is www.jmcc.us, I worked there for 5 years.
