Most of the 35 members of the Aeonium genus hail from the Canary Islands off the coast of Spain, though a few are native to parts of Africa. The leaves are arranged in a low rosette which will flower once and then die back, killing the cactus if it is single-stemmed (though the plant may throw off other rosettes which will in turn flower). Aeonium species are often known more for their uniquely shaped foliage (which can take on hues from orange to deep purple) than for their flowers.
Unique foliage give this succulent a romantic, artistic appeal. Perfect for all kinds of containers, dish gardens, and terrariums. A perfect gift plant.
