Aeonium 'Alice Keck Park' - This hybrid Aeonium is found throughout gardens in Santa Barbara including large plantings in Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden in the downtown. This plant has been mostly passed around by gardeners unnamed but is thought to be an Aeonium canariense hybrid. It has 6 to 10 inch long green leaves with red tinges that form rosettes that look like 12 to 18 inch wide flat dinner plates. It forms very attractive large clumps. When a rosette matures it sends up a 2 to 3 foot flower stalk of greenish-white flowers. The flowers, while interesting, are not as attractive as the foliage on this plant. As the attached rosette dies back when flowering it is best to trim out flowering plants shortly after flowering. Plant in full sun (coastal) to light shade in a well-drained soil and give occasional to regular irrigation. We have seen this plant growing in gardens that get light frosts and speculate that it will tolerate temperatures down to 28 F without damage. We also have a second form from Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden that does not seem to bloom. We are calling this form 'Carol'. Both forms were shared with us by Santa Barbara City Parks Gardener Carol Terry. San Marcos Growers first introduced this plant to the horticultural trade in 2004.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of this plant in our nursery crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We also will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Aeonium 'Alice Keck Park'.
