Aeonium sedifolium (Dwarf Aeonium) - A small succulent plant that has delicate branching stems to not much more than 6 inches tall and wide bearing small rosettes of inch long rounded sticky lime-green leaves streaked with red stripes that radiate upward in the rosette, unlike most of the larger flat topped Aeonium. In spring appear the bright yellow star-shaped flowers. Plant in full coastal sun to filtered light in a well-drained soil and protect from frost - seems hardy to short duration cold temperatures down to around 30 F. Has a summer dormancy where it is best kept fairly dry in shade though with some water it seems to keep its leaves - otherwise it will lose them. An interesting small succulent for mixed planters or a small spot in the rock garden or used as a natural bonsai plant in a small pot. This plant is native to the Canary Islands, the form with red striped leaves apparently comes from the south-eastern parts of La Palma Island. As the species name implies, this plant has leaves like that of the genus Sedum. We have been told that this plant can be used much as Aeonium lindleyi is used to provide relief for the irritation caused by skin contact with Euphorbia latex  The information about Aeonium sedifolium displayed on this page is based on research conducted in our library and from reliable online resources. We also relate observations made about it as it grows in our nursery gardens and other gardens we visit, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments we receive from others, and we welcome hearing from anyone with additional information, particularly if they can share cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
