This beautiful tall succulent has rosettes of dark reddish-bronze leaves on stems to 4 to 5 feet tall. 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. This hybrid was created by California horticulturist Jack Catlin by crossing Aeonium undulatum with Aeonium arboreum ‘Zwartkop’. Great as an indoor plant as well as in a container. Great addition for a xeriscape setting.
