Common Name:

Copper Pinwheel


Canary Islands


Family: Crassulaceae

Large colorful hybrid with red-edged rosettes to 2ft.

This plant was originally introduced in the Huntington Garden’s 1993 International Succulent Introductions (ISI 93) catalog as Aeonium decorum “Sunburst” but is now thought to be a variegated form of A. davidbramwellii

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.
