Description: Aeonium glandulosum is one of the most amazing succulents and a must have for any Aeonium enthusiast . In nature plants can be found growing in large colonies on open cliff faces and escarpments, where they grow vertically finding a foot hold within rock crevices and in the shallow vertical soils.
The shape is a flat disc rosette which often becomes elongated and cup shaped over summer and when dormant. The colours are seasonally variable but will transition to beautiful shades of pink, red and purple throughout the year and when grown hard or stressed.
This species superficially resembles A. tabuliforme but can easily be distinguished by it marginal bead shaped glands (please see photo), its summer dormancy shape and its array of delicate colours.
Plants are usually a single rosette or occasionally offsetting and usually always reproduced from seed.
Plant Care: There are two options were recommend trying when growing this species: Firstly is to grow it horizontally in shallow pot like most other succulents or get adventurous and grow it vertically in a rock wall or between two sleeper in a retaining wall etc... any location that may hold a small amount of soil and water.
To achieve the best colours, grow plants is a bright location but avoiding the hot afternoon sun or your plants may burn. Too much shade, water and fertilser and the plants may remain green. Aeoniums are extremely underestimated on how tough they actually are and the harder they are grown, often the better colours you will get!
Origins & Distribution: Madeira archipelago (Madeira, Porto Santo, Desertas)
