Common Name:

Giant Aeonium


Canary Islands


Family: Crassulaceae

Large dinner-plate rosettes on thick stalk. Dark purple leaves with a bright green center in full sun. Hybrids available with many branches, but original cultivar is often solitary or with few branches. Giant pyramid of yellow flowers.

This is a hybrid of A. undulatum and A. “Zwartkop” that was originally created by Jack Catlin, and distributed in the Huntington Garden’s 1995 issue of the International Succulent Introductions catalog (ISI-95).

Does well outdoors in the bay area as a potted plant or landscape specimen. Plant in well draining media. This plant is from a winter rainfall region, but can receive water throughout the year in cultivation. Should be watered about once every 2 weeks, always allowing time for the soil to dry out between waterings. This plant does not like extreme heat and can fry if the temperatures rise above 100°F for long periods. Aeoniums are monocarpic so branches die back after flowering, but plants will generally re-branch from lower stems
