Green Platter Aeonium
Aeonium “Green Platter”
Aeonium with mostly flat broad rosettes, and wide rounded green leaves
The origin of this plant appears to be entirely unknown. It is almost certainly a hybrid, and some people speculate it is a cross of A. arboreum x A. canariense, but it’s true parentage is uncertain.
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.
