Aeonium- Copper Pinwheel

succulent 2Aeonium ‘Sunburst’ is a branching succulent with large rosettes of variegated green and white leaves edged in bright, coppery red that stand up on stalks up to 18 inches (45 cm) tall. The white flowers bloom in summer on mature plants.

Aeoniums do not like really hot or dry weather. They may go dormant in summer and do not require any water, except in very dry conditions. In extreme heat, their leaves will curl, to prevent excessive water loss. Growing them in moist shade will keep them growing, but their true growth season is winter to spring, when temperatures are cool and damp. In the winter, water whenever the soil has dried out. Test by poking your finger down into the soil an inch or two. Too much moisture or allowing them to sit in wet soil will cause root rot. A sandy loam or regular potting mix is better than a mix specifically for cacti and succulents, since Aeonium need some moisture. If you are growing them in containers, repot every 2 –3 years with fresh potting soil.
