Family: Crassulaceae

Medium Aeonium up to 3ft with Green and rich-reddish-brown rosettes

This is a cultivar hybrid of A. canariense and A. “Schwarzkopf” originally produced by Jack Catlin in 1976, and distributed in the Huntington Garden’s 2000 issue of the International Succulent Introductions catalog (ISI-2000)

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
