Aeonium arboreum (Tree Aeonium) - A nice medium-green succulent which forms branched stems 3 feet tall, looking like a miniature tree. Rosettes are formed at the ends of the stems. Yellow flowers form long clusters in mid spring to early summer. It grows in full sun near the coast and partial shade inland. Water occasionally to infrequently. Hardy to 27 degrees F. This plant is great along the ocean and tolerates drought and is reportedly resistant to deer predation. While not as unique as the red leafed selections this plant is a great addition to the garden where a green foliage plant is wanted and its tall bare stems holding the flatted rosettes can be appreciated. Aeonium arborescens is native to Gran Carnaria Island in the Canary Islands.  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 arboreum.
