"American aloe plant," 1797, from Greek Agaue, proper name in mythology (mother of Pentheus), from agauos "noble," perhaps from agasthai "wonder at".

My cultured Beaucarnea stricta has almost after every winter light frost damage,
it is planted right next to my B. recurvata, which has never had an injury.
Maybe it is but also because that B. recurvata is bigger and gets more sun in the winter.

I would guess sun exposure has something to do with it... here in Acton it the B recurvatas that take a hit in the winters and B strictas are untouched. B guatemalensis are completely defoliated or killed.
