  • Special notes:  
    This is a shorter form of Aeonium arborescens that is composed of many small rosettes which completely cover the main stems giving the plant a pyramidal shape. The rosettes are green in the center and radiate out to become a dark burgundy color as they age. The species has large panicles of bright yellow flowers but this cultivar may not always flower. When in bloom the flowers attract butterflies, bees and other nectar seeking insects. Plants should be covered during hard freezes as leaves are severely damaged by frost though the main stem and plant will likely recover. It has good salt tolerance and can be grown in seaside gardens.
