Common Name:

Dwarf Aeonium


Canary Islands


Family: Crassulaceae

Miniature Aeonium with unusual brightly colored, oval leaves. Very branchy, and low-growing almost shrub-like form. Yellow flowers. Protect from frost.

Found growing on Tenerife in the Canary Islands.

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.
