Miniature Aeonium with shrubby stems, and very small rosettes, slightly fuzzy green leaves get a hint of red, almost blush color in full sun. Many yellow flowers. In the summer the rosettes curl up into very tight balls at the tips of each branch, which uncurl again during the active growing season.
Found growing on Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Gomera, La Palma, and El Hierro 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.
Temperature: Hardy to 20F
