Aeonium lindleyi var. viscatum 'Irish Bouquet' – An exceptionally dense compact small sub-shrub, branching from the base and forming a mound to about 8 inches tall and spreading outwards 1 to 2 feet wide with obovate-spathulate green leaves that are densely glandular pubescent, which makes them sticky. The small yellow star-shaped flowers appear in late winter and spring. Plant in full sun to bright shade in a soil that drains well and water occasionally. Protect from frost. This plant is most often marketed just as Aeonium ‘Irish Bouquet’ and while some speculate it is actually a species of the closely related genus Aichryson (which most recently has been subsumed into Aeonium) it really appears to match up better with Aeonium lindleyi var viscatum, though is difficult to distinguish from Aeonium lindleyi var. lindleyi, a variety from Tenerife that is more erect and with thicker hairy leaves or Aeonium goochiae from La Palma that has very thin leaves and pink flowers. Aeonium viscatum comes the island of Gomera that lies between La Palma and Tenerife, where it is often found sprawling down steep slopes below 2,000 feet in elevation. The name from the genus comes for Greek word 'aionion' or 'aionios' meaning immortal or everlasting for its succulent nature and presumed longevity. The specific epithet comes from the root word ‘viscos’ meaning “sticky’ or “viscid”.  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also 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 lindleyi var. viscatum 'Irish Bouquet'.
