Aeonium 'Mint Saucer' (Green Aeonium) - Succulent to 2-3' tall with large green rosettes that mound up to form a dense colony. Plant in full sun (coastal) to part sun. Drought tolerant. Yellow flowers in summer. Rosettes surrounding flowering plant dies back. Hardy to about 25-30 degrees F. This plant was given to us many years ago by a local Santa Barbara gardener. We asked many succulent specialists and other nurseries if they could identify it and as yet nobody has come up with a name. It has been suggested that it is a Aeonium canariensis hybrid but it was different enough from other Aeonium that we felt we should apply a name, even if only temporarily, to designate this plant as different. The name has stuck and we now have customers asking for it by name - guess it will remain Aeonium 'Mint Saucer'. San Marcos Growers first introduced this plant to the horticultural trade in 1991.  This information about Aeonium 'Mint Saucer' displayed is based on research conducted in our library and from reliable online resources. We will also note observations that we have made about it as it grows in the gardens in our nursery and those elsewhere, 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.
