Bright yellow flowers. Very unusual.
This is a great small foliage Aeonium which leaves fold up when the plant is going through a dry spell. Regardless of climate this plant always seems to start flowering at RHS Chelsea and can go on until mid July. The flowers attract bees like a magnet and so as striking as the bright yellow flowers are to the human eye I would say bees appreciate much more. We recommend protecting from winter wet as although hardy if kept dry we sometimes lose our rock garden specimens to wet winters.
Hardiness: Hardy to -7c if kept on dry side through winter
Trim back flowers when finished to encourage more growth and flowers. Protect from the winter wet. Looks good in the greenhouse or conservatory during the winter months.
