Aeonium

This plant is so easy to grow. Aeonium was not part of my plant palette until I started working at LWTech Horticulture where we propagate them by the hundreds. Cuttings root readily in dirt or in a jar of water. This is how I keep mine going over the winter. I currently have three rooted cuttings in water at my kitchen windowsill waiting to be planted in spring. I love the unusual shape and texture of aeoniums and think they look great in the garden. I was thrilled to see them growing in many gardens in Wellington, New Zealand when I visited that country in the winter several years ago. Look for them in the succulent section at the local garden center.
