IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT

We generally ship Orders placed between Monday and Thursday at noon, the following Monday. When possible, we ship on Wednesdays.
We don't want orders to sit over the weekend.

We remove some of the soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are usually
no issues with a plants out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receiver your plants, put them
into a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: give
the roots opportunity to start reaching down for water.
Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase.
Some don't get water in winter and some no water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what plants look like when grown.
We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time.
A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Aeoniums ~ Crassulaceae family ~

Growing season is winter/spring. Water adequately during this season. Some Aeoniums thrive in full sun or bright light. They are dormant in summer, so hold back on water during this time. If possible, it is best to provide shaded, cool conditions during the summer dormancy. Do not let them over-heat in summer. Shade is advised in hot, sunny conditions. They are frost tender!

Aeonium arboreum Tricolor
cuttings

Sizes

Aeonium arboreum 'Tricolor', a cultivar of Moroccan Aeonium arboreum, forms variegated rosettes atop stems to 30" in height. Rosettes are 5" or more in diameter, and are comprised of glossy green leaves with broad cream, ciliate margins. Tall cone-shaped spikes of many star-shaped golden flowers during spring. Can be used for dramatic foliage accent on the patio or in landscapes in temperate areas. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Summer dormant; preferable to provide cool shade during dormancy. Click photo for complete information and to See alternative propagation method. Protect from frost.

Aeonium canariense
8" pot $20

Aeonium canariense have a soft, fuzzy texture. The more light the redder they become. They bloom winter through spring. They grow to about 3' and their rosettes are about 6" in diameter. Water thoroughly when the soil is dry. They are winter growers and Summer dormant. They are sensitive to frost. The photo of the Aeonium canariense is in a 1 gallon pot. By that time they generally have offshoots.

Aeonium crested #2
temporarily unavailable

They are looking good!
but... we need to propagate more.
This time of year they are much more red.

Aeonium cyclops
Sizes

Aeonium 'Cyclops' (Giant Red Aeonium) - This beautiful tall succulent has rosettes of dark reddish-bronze leaves on stems to 4 to 5 feet tall. Plant in full coastal sun to light shade in a well drained soil and irrigate occasionally. It should be cold hardy to about 25° F. This hybrid was created by eminent southern California horticulturist Jack Catlin by crossing Aeonium undulatum with Aeonium arboreum 'Zwartkop'. The rosettes are to 12" in diameter and glossy dark bronzed burgundy with an electric green "eye". Fast grower click photo for more information.

Aeonium decorum cv
sunburst crested

Sizes

Aeonium decorum require gritty well drained potting mix. Water deeply but infrequently. Plants are allowed to thoroughly dry in-between waterings.  During the winter months restrict water to about once a month, or just enough to keep the foliage from shrivelling. Position in full to part sun in a sheltered spot, but the bright light enhances the rich hues of the darker Aeoniums, and the subtle blushes of the other colours, but prefers light shade to shade in summer.

Aeonium domesticum

As they grow they form an umbrella shape. Aichryson are easily propagated by cuttings. They look like Miniature bushes with golden yellow flowers in summer, their origin is unknown. Aeonium domesticum variegata, native to the Canary Islands, was previously classified as Aichryson. The genus Aichryson is considered intermediate between the genera Sedum and Sempervivum. Known as "Youth & Old Age". Freely branching rosettes of rounded emerald green leaves with white ciliate margins. Yellow star-shaped flowers in clusters. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Filtered light and ample airflow. Summer dormant; preferable to provide cool shade during dormancy. Aeonium domesticum variegata, native to the Canary Islands, was previously classified as Aichryson.

Aeonium 'Emerald Ice'
8" pots generally have
3 or more pups
Sizes


Aeonium 'Kiwi' tricolor
Sizes

Aeonium 'Kiwi' is a small branching variegated shrub with pointed ovate leaves in a star-shape. Leaves have ciliate margins, and are pale yellow with ciliate margins with green mistripes and rose edges in drought or cool weather. Porous soil with adequate drainage.

Aeonium lindleyii
2 cuttings $3

Aeonium lindleyi, native to the Canary Islands, is a small shrubby succulent that branches freely. Rosettes of small, sticky green leaves covered with whitish hairs sit atop the branches. Small yellow star-shaped flowers in clusters. Many consider the sap to be beneficial in the first aid for irritations caused by the burning of Euphorbia sap, but this has not been verified by the scientific community. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Summer dormant; preferable to provide cool shade during dormancy. Protect from frost.

Aeonium 'Mardi Gras'
Sizes

Aeonium hybrid. Color varies from a cream center to a solid pink/reddish color. They keep their deep color and variagation if grown in part shade. Sometimes too much sun turns the plants deep red.

Aeonium nobile

Aeonium nobile, native to the Canary Islands, is considered to be the largest of all Aeoniums. Forms rosettes to 12" or more in diameter with fleshy, broad, somewhat triangular leaves. Leaves blush reddish in bright light. Inflorescence is somewhat flattened and wider towards top, often to several feet in diameter. Hundreds of star-shaped red flowers (very unusual for Aeonium as flowers are usually yellow or cream in color) comprise long-lasting inflorescence. Excellent in landscape. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright light to full sun with ample airlfow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Summer dormant. Protect from frost.

Aeonium sedifolium
8" pot $25

Aeonium sedifolium, native to the Canary Islands, forms tiny rosettes with plump, shiny, sticky lime green leaves that are streaked in red.

Aeonium sunburst pink

Aeonium 'Sunburst' pink. Frilly, lace like. When they get larger, they generally have multiple branches and grow tight to the main stem. They seem to grow better in part shade. Photo is a mature plant in large pot!

BACK AGAIN

Aeonium 'Suncup'
Sizes

Research tells me that this is an old cultivar of Aeonium castello-paiae and it is called Aeonium 'Suncup' not Aeonium decorum sunburst variagated as I had it labeled. Variegated cream/green/yellow leaves forming open rosettes to 10cm wide on low branching stems. Develops pink leaf margins when grown in the sun.   I grow mine in part shade. White flowers in summer. Sun/part sun.

Aeonium tabulaeforme
Temporarily unavailable
6" pot $10

Aeonium tabulaeforme is a Canary Island Aeonium that grows nearly flattened to the ground in a round whorl of many lime green ciliate leaves (edged in soft hairs). In habitat, these plants look like flying saucers scattered all around the terrain. Can grow to nearly 20" in diameter. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch and plant on an angle so that the water will roll off. As Aeoniums are summer dormant it is preferable to provide cool shade during dormancy. Protect from frost.

NEW
Aeonium tabulaeforme crested
aka fairy moss
Sizes

Aeonium tabulaeforme is a Canary Island Aeonium that grows nearly flattened to the ground in a round whorl of many lime green ciliate leaves (edged in soft hairs). In habitat, these plants look like flying saucers scattered all around the terrain. Can grow to nearly 20" in diameter. Thiis is a cristate form that produces fan-shaped growth, rather than the "flying saucers". Rather than the leaves growing from one central apical meristem (growing tip), the apical meristem has "gone crazy", growing laterally in a fan shape and leaves are produced all along this fan-shape. click photo for info about crested form
