These gorgeous little guys are some kind of Aeonium. They originate in the Canary Islands and Tenerife, off the coast of Africa where they have adapted to really warm bright conditions – so much so that they actually go dormant in the summer to conserve their energy.

You can see more about them here; Aeonium.

They sometimes go by the name ‘Green Rose’ – no surprise there! They do resemble a flower in shape.
