I love these succulents. Aeonium arboreum’s grow quite tall, up to two meter in height. Mine are in containers and I keep them short. The young leaves in the center look like rosettes. I have them in two colors green and purple. They come in various variegated forms too. Like all succulents they hate being over watered and my purple one is not looking so great after the rains.
They grow from cuttings. I have tried rooting the leaves but as the leaves are too thin they either rot or dry up.
This is a spectacular plant when in bloom or not. With branches pruned well they look amazing. They look stunning in a bonsai pot when styled like bonsai.
Do you like the Aeonium Arboreum ?
Do you like succulents?
We had them in big pots when we had a garden, we call them “artichokes” (“we” as a family). Yes, they can grow pretty tall!
I don’t remember seeing them blooming though. ?
A beautiful plant but I have never seen it in our country
I do like succulents. I used to go often to the annual sale when I lived in San Francisco. Here they mostly are houseplants. I have a couple in my house.
That is wonderful. I am crazy about plants especially succulents.
love these types of plants they are fun to watch!
They are beautiful to watch, especially when they grow really big.
i have not seen them very big, most of the ones around here are trimmed back.
I think that is the fortune plant that we have here.
You call them fortune plant? It always interesting to know how each region thinks of each plant.
It has beautiful yellow egde on its leaves
Its got these yellow edges with reddish markings on them, Looks really pretty,
Some call this Irish Rose. Never head it but I love my autumn joy sedum.
Yes, true its commonly know as the Irish rose.
Don’t they have a simpler name. Difficult to pronounce I bet (lol)
LOL not all that hard, its also called the Irish rose as carol mentioned.
