  • Uses:  
    This succulent can be used to create visual interest in containers, roof decks, lawn edges, borders, and rock gardens. It looks great when grown in colonies on slopes and when planted in mass groupings as a taller groundcover. It also provides a nice contrast to cactus and other succulents. Good along the ocean as it tolerates some salt spray.
  • Propagation:  
    This plant can be easily propagated by taking stem cuttings. Allow the stem cutting to dry for a day and callus over before planting to avoid rot. It may not set seed or come true from seed because it is a hybrid.
  • Problems:  
    Snails and slugs can damage the leaves. Needs well-draining soils to avoid root or stem rot.
  • Special notes:  
    This is a beautiful lower-growing hybrid aeonium with green rosettes edged in bronze. The leaves are narrower and more pointed than typical aeoniums (like its parent plant A. simsii) and the plant somewhat resembles a group of large long-leaved sempervivums. Leaves take on more reddish hues when grown in bright light or subject to stress. This multi-branched shrubby aeonium takes on a cylindrical to pyramidal shape as it matures. In spring it blooms with panicles of yellow flowers which attract nectar-seeking insects.
