Aeonium urbicum

Aeonium urbicum Aeonium urbicum

Holy inflorescence, Batgirl! Rare, robust and EASY to grow, this drought tolerant Canary Island succulent makes just about the biggest flowerhead you're ever gonna see - quite the focal point for your tropical or succulent garden. Wondrous in a large container, too! One of the tallest Aeoniums, it can reach an unbranched 4-6' tall - its pyramidal inflorescence easily reaches 3' x 3' in size. Pink or white starry blooms appear July thru August and are much adored by bees of all shapes and sizes. Strikingly architectural, even when not in bloom - which takes a few years - with long leaved, smooth rosettes to 20" across. Fertile, well-drained soil and occasional Summer water keep it looking perfect. Do water more often to establish. Usually dies after flowering, but provides much seed.
