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.  The information provided on this page is based on the research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations of our nursery crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We also will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Aeonium undulatum.
