Aeonium Arboreum Features: An Overview
- Aeonium Arboreum succulents generally grow at altitudes of about 328 feet (100 m) above sea level.
- They belong to the Aeonium genus that contains about 35 peculiar-looking species of succulents. The most common species include A. Arboreum, A. ‘Garnet’, A. Davidbramwelli ‘Sunburst’, and A. haworthii ‘Kiwi’ or ‘Tricolor’.
- There are several popular varieties of A. Arboreum like A. Arboreum ‘Atropurpureum’ and A. Arboreum ‘Zwartkop’. While Atropurpureum is a tall specimen with maroon foliage, Zwartkop comes in similar sizes but with almost black leaves.
- With a slow-growing habit, these shrubs can reach heights of up to 6 feet (1.8 m) if grown in a garden and up to 3 feet (0.9 m) in pots.
- Aeonium Arboreum plants have fleshy, glossy, and bright green leaves that grow in flattened rosettes on a branching stem. Usually, the younger leaves are pressed close together.
- During their blooming period, they produce a large pyramidal inflorescence of yellow and slightly fluffy blooms on tiny stems. The flowers’ base is smooth, shiny, and colored in green, purple, or red.
- They are a great life companion to Kalanchoe Blossfeldiana thanks to their similar requirements regarding environmental conditions and moisture.
