Aeonium hierrense
"Giant Houseleek"

Super rare and possibly the most majestic of all Aeoniums, this giant boasts impressive red-edged, long-leaved rosettes to 30” across atop thick, tropicalesque stalks to 3’ tall. Handsomely patterned in olive green and white, they look like designer palm trunks! After 3 or more years, it bursts into a pyramidal head of pink and white starry blooms. It’s monocarpic, so after blooming it will pass away (hopefully leaving behind lots of seed!).To our knowledge we are the first nursery in the U.S. to offer this elephant-sized and imposing species - possibly the largest in the genus. EASY and low maintenance, it makes a stunning subject for a container or dryish well-drained garden.
