Aeonium 'Carol' - This hybrid Aeonium was found in Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden in downtown Santa Barbara and is thought to be an Aeonium canariense hybrid. It has 6 to 10 inch green leaves with red tinges that form rosettes that look like 12 to 18 inch wide flat dinner plates. It forms very attractive clumps. It is very similar to another Aeonium canariensis hybrid we call Aeonium 'Alice Keck Park', but this plant does not seem to flower. This is certainly beneficial as when these Aeonium flower, the attached rosette dies back. Plant in full sun (coastal) to light shade. We have seen this plant growing in gardens that get light frosts and can speculate that it will tolerate temperatures down to 28 F without damage. Like Aeonium 'Alice Keck Park' this plant was shared with us by Santa Barbara City Parks Gardener Carol Terry. San Marcos Growers first introduced this plant to the horticultural trade in 2005.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received 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 'Carol'.
