Aeonium1008

Go back to weekly blog


These Aeoniums are spectacular when in flower and can stand drought conditions. One problem with them is that the stems snap easily and care must be taken when moving them. I have two of these growing on the Tree Fern's trunk and the stems grow down over the pot they are in and looks like they are growing out the trunk of the Tree Fern's trunk. The main rosette of this Aeonium grows large and it sends out several side shoots. These smaller rosettes will flower in the following years if allowed to get large, but the central large rosette will flower next year with a large yellow flower head. The side shoots easily roots generating a new plant.
