Aeonium

Aeonium is a genus of about 35 species, mainly native to the Canary Islands. Most form small shrubs of multiple waxy rosettes on a basal stem. The leaves of many species have attractive variations. Flowers star-shaped and typically yellow, borne on mature plants in pyramid shaped clusters at the end of the stems. Excellent for mass planting.

CULTIVATION TIPS
Aeonium are winter growers and require regular water during the growing season and only an occasional light watering during summer. For their best colour they need full winter sun but shade them during summer. Not frost hardy below -1° C.

Out of Season. More in late autumn.
