Aeonium 'Cyclops' (Giant Red Aeonium) - This beautiful tall succulent has rosettes of dark reddish-bronze leaves on stems to 3 to 4 feet tall with newest emerging leaves green which gives the rosette a green eye. A stout 2-foot-tall pyramidal inflorescence rises in from the center of this plant in late summer into fall.

Plant in full coastal sun to light shade in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally. It should be cold hardy to about 25 F. A stunning large Aeonium!

This hybrid was created by eminent southern California horticulturist Jack Catlin by crossing Aeonium undulatum with Aeonium arboreum 'Zwartkop'. Another Catlin hybrid that we grow with the same parentage is called Aeonium 'Voodoo'.. 'Cyclops' has the stronger green eye while 'Voodoo' tends to be more of a solid dark color and grows larger. 

This information about Aeonium 'Cyclops' displayed is based on research conducted in our horticultural library and from reliable online resources. We also will relate observations made about it as it grows in our nursery gardens and other gardens we have visited, as well how the crops have performed in containers in our nursery field. We will also incorporate comments that we receive from others and we welcome hearing from anyone with additional information, particularly if they can share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
