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 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 'Mint Saucer'.
