  • Uses:  
    This is a great plant for bringing contrasting dark foliage into succulent and cactus gardens. It looks good when set against gray or silver-blue foliage and is also interesting paired with grasses. It also works well in containers – alone or combined with other succulents.
  • Propagation:  
    This plant is easily propagated by taking stem cuttings. Allow the stem cutting to dry for a day before planting to avoid rot. This plant may not come true from seed as it is a hybrid. If a single stem becomes too lanky in can be cut and replanted. The original stem will eventually branch and form new rosettes
  • Problems:  
    Protect from snails and slugs which can damage leaves. Requires well-draining soils to avoid root rot.
  • Special notes:  
    This large and attractive hybrid Aeonium was created by southern California horticulturist Jack Catlin when crossing Aeonium undulatum with Aeonium arboreum 'Zwartkop'. The burgundy to purple rosette heads reach 12"-16" in diameter. Like most aeoniums, it is mostly a cool weather grower going somewhat dormant in warm, dry summers. Best leaf color is achieved with at least 3-4 hours of full sun. Aeonium 'Voodoo' branches less than other aeoniums and tends to be a solitary plant. The aeonium cross 'Cyclops' is of similar parentage but has a larger green eye in the center of the rosette. This plant blooms in spring, sending up conical clusters of small bright star-shaped yellow flowers. Flowering taxes the plant and blooming stems usually die.
