Aeonium decorum (Green Pinwheel) - Evergreen, multi-branching succulent forms a 1 foot mound of 3 inch wide rosettes clustered on thick branches. The leaves are pale green with orange-red tones and red leaf margins. In late spring the inflorescence rises above the foliage and lies over diagonally, bearing soft pink flowers. Prefers a sunny area in well-drained soil. Water occasionally to little. Hardy to around 30 F. These plants give an "other-world" effect, especially when planted in groups.  This description is based on research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in our nursery garden and in other gardens that we visit.
