Description: This is a variety of Aeonium arboreum from the island El Hierro which is not currently described within the Aeonium genus. Often plants are found in nature where they do not 100% correctly identify as a particular known species and the correct identification remains uncertain. Plants of this nature are often given the abbreviated taxonomy term of aff. (Latin affinis) meaning related to.
So this particular species shows strong similarities to Aeonium arboreum var. holochryusm, but at present has not botanically been included within this species.
This is a tall and strong growing species with large open rosettes to around 25cm in diameter. Generally green in colour through out winter, then developing compact disc shaped rosettes with maroon coloured marginal stripes over the summer period. The harder this species is grown, the better colours you will get.
Plant Care: This is a tough species and is well suited to growing in pots, as well as in the ground. Plant in full sun to achieve the best summer colours.
Origins & Distribution: Canary Islands (El Hierro)
