Aeonium arboreum (Tree Aeonium) - A nice medium-green succulent which forms branched stems 3 feet tall, looking like a miniature tree. Rosettes are formed at the ends of the stems. Yellow flowers form long clusters in mid spring to early summer. It grows in full sun near the coast and partial shade inland. Water occasionally to infrequently. Hardy to 27 degrees F. This plant is great along the ocean and tolerates drought and is reportedly resistant to deer predation. While not as unique as the red leafed selections this plant is a great addition to the garden where a green foliage plant is wanted and its tall bare stems holding the flatted rosettes can be appreciated. Aeonium arborescens is native to Gran Carnaria Island in the Canary Islands.  Information displayed on this page about  Aeonium arboreum is based on the research conducted about it in our library and from reliable online resources. We also note those observations we have made of this plant as it grows in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how crops have performed in our nursery field. We will incorporate comments we receive from others, and welcome to hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
