Aeonium glandulosum

photo(left): Aeonium in Habitat and Cultivation
by Rudolf Schulz

So wondrously bizarre I had to possess one and now you can too! Almost unheard of in cultivation, it’s quite the non-fussy Canary Island succulent, tolerating hot and dry conditions and hardly any soil. Like “Dinner Plate Aeonium” A. tabuliforme, it grows into an almost perfectly flat rosette to about 12” across but has tiny sticky beads arranged like tiny jewels around the edges of each leaf. To achieve this otherworldly, red leaved appearance, plant it in a sunny rock wall or a vertical garden and don’t water it often. An excellent container subject too! Remains green in shade. Blooms after several years with a 1’ crown of yellow daisies and then dies but carries on by offsets. Well drained soil.
