Aeonium 'Carol' - This hybrid Aeonium was found in Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden in downtown Santa Barbara and is thought to be an Aeonium canariense hybrid. It has 6 to 10 inch green leaves with red tinges that form rosettes that look like 12 to 18 inch wide flat dinner plates. It forms very attractive clumps. It is very similar to another Aeonium canariensis hybrid we call Aeonium 'Alice Keck Park', but this plant does not seem to flower. This is certainly beneficial as when these Aeonium flower, the attached rosette dies back. Plant in full sun (coastal) to light shade. We have seen this plant growing in gardens that get light frosts and can speculate that it will tolerate temperatures down to 28 F without damage. Like Aeonium 'Alice Keck Park' this plant was shared with us by Santa Barbara City Parks Gardener Carol Terry. San Marcos Growers first introduced this plant to the horticultural trade in 2005.  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. We also incorporate comments received and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have any additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Aeonium 'Carol'.
