Aeonium arboreum

I got this little guy from my friend Sue a while back.  It has thin, slightly fleshy leaves that grow in a radial from the centre of the plant and has golden-yellow flowers in the spring (I’m still waiting to see the flowers).  This plant currently has one stem but they normally grow more branches.

Surprisingly, another succulent I thought was South African is not.  This one originates in the Canary Islands!

Good to know Smile. We’ve got one of these from Rog’s mum and someone told me it wasn’t indigenous. I wonder how many of these have ‘crept’ in – where we think they’re indigenous, but they’re ‘imposters’. ha
