Aeonium: A Field Guide

Aeonium is a loner in the wild, typically growing in isolation on rocky hillsides. In landscape design, however, the succulent’s rosette shape is useful both as a single accent in a garden bed or when clustered, to complement other textures and colors of nearby foliage.

Aeoniums also are happy companions when interplanted with other succulents or annuals in a container. Among the nearly three dozen species, some of the most dramatic are A. arboreum, with panicles of vibrant yellow flowers, and three-foot-tall A. arboreum.  

Take note: Aeonium is unlike most succulents because it is a winter grower and frequently will go dormant in the heat of summer.
