Aeonium undulatum (Stalked Aeonium) - This succulent comes from the middle elevations (1,300-1,900 ft) of the Laurel forest regions on the north of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands. It is an unbranched shrub that has somewhat metallic-green wavy 10 inch long spoon-shaped leaves that form large rosettes on stout-stems to 2 to 3 feet tall that arise from a subterranean rootstock. Flowers are a dark yellow in a terminal cluster rising up to 20 inches above the foliage, usually in summer - this plant rarely flowers for us. Plant in full sun (coastal) to light shade - can tolerate inland full sun but looks best with some shade. Water occasionally to regularly in summer. Cold hardy to about 25-30 F. This curious looking plant always gets a second look - the smooth bare unbranched stems topped with a head of leaves gives one the impression of a odd looking small palm tree. This plant received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit in 1999.  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 undulatum.
