I took 2 cuttings from my sister’s plant in Burbank, CA. In just a few months, they grew to about a foot tall in pots.

Her plant in planted in the ground and is about 2 1/2 feet tall.

I thought it was some type of Aeonium, but not sure. Can anyone identify this plant? Thank you!

Comments for Possible Aeonium?

Yes, that’s exactly what it is. Sorry I don’t know the exact species, but you can see more about this genus here: Aeonium.

They are a little tricky to grow, but in your area they are a natural. The dormant period that they require in the summer coincides nicely with the heat and drought that you normally see in California, so they can be put on ‘ignore’ at that time, to recover and grow again into the fall.

Best of luck with your gorgeous plants!
