Hi All,



Not long ago I got a seed list from Penrock in South Africa. Looking throught the list carefully I came across this Aloe listing:


A. modesta  is a rare dwarf grass aloe species from high altitude short grassland in a few regions of Mpumalanga.  It is the only 
  scented aloe on the African continent.  The flowers smell of cinamon mixed with lemon juice.  The species is decidious and has a  bulb like Aloe kniphofioides.


So this in an Aloe that has a bulb? Never having seen either the A. modesta or the A. kniphofioides I was curious as to if anyone has grown either of these species before and can shed some light on this?


Thanks all
