♥Aeoniums are beautiful rosette shaped succulents requiring little water and many cultivars of color to enjoy. They are one of the best succulents for growing in pots! The fleshy leaves can be smooth, hairy or finely ciliated margins. Aeoniums grow well in full sun and in partial shady areas with well-drained soil. This is an easy plant to propagate from stem and leaf cuttings.
Aeonium gomerense- "Kiwi"- Lighter green from full sunlight
Aeonium arboreum var. atropurpureum (more green than purple because it is in the sunlight most of the day. These turn a dark reddish-purple when in partial shade.
Aeonium gomerense- (in partial shade) leaves are a darker green. The flowers are white when in bloom. I grow these in pots and on my hillside for landscape ground-cover.
Aeonium 'Cyclops'- See how dark purple the leaves are? These are in the shade for half of the day. So beautiful!
Aeonium 'Sunburst' variegated- a nice showy succulent. I grow these on my hillside next to rosemary and birds of paradise.
