Aeonium 'Mint Saucer' (Green Aeonium) - Succulent to 2-3' tall with large green rosettes that mound up to form a dense colony. Plant in full sun (coastal) to part sun. Drought tolerant. Yellow flowers in summer. Rosettes surrounding flowering plant dies back. Hardy to about 25-30 degrees F. This plant was given to us many years ago by a local Santa Barbara gardener. We asked many succulent specialists and other nurseries if they could identify it and as yet nobody has come up with a name. It has been suggested that it is a Aeonium canariensis hybrid but it was different enough from other Aeonium that we felt we should apply a name, even if only temporarily, to designate this plant as different. The name has stuck and we now have customers asking for it by name - guess it will remain Aeonium 'Mint Saucer'. San Marcos Growers first introduced this plant to the horticultural trade in 1991.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have 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 'Mint Saucer'.
