Aeonium aboreum - green

In the last couple of years Aeomeums have become quite fashionable amongst garden designers.The plant is easily grown from cuttings just cut of a piece of stem and plant it in damp compost, it should root readily and within six weeks can be potted on or planted.

There are a variety of coloured and variegated leaf forms. The leaves form tightly packed rosettes on bare woody stems, mature plants can be quite striking.

Although they are reputed to be frost tender as long as they are not standing in water they will survide light frosts.

  1. Beautiful plants, Colin, and so generous when cuttings taken. For the first time ever, one of mine has flowered - a pyramid of yellow which the bees love.
