I'm in Cornwall. Yes I have grown aeoniums in the ground and kept there over winter. Sometimes it works sometimes not. Often it's been a late spring frost that catches them.
In nearby Perranporth in a garden overlooking the sea a mass plantImg of aeonium swarkskopf survived at least 3 years.
I keep one plant outside in a pot but always bring a plant or two indoors too.
It may be better to let cuttimgs dry out first but I never do.....they are taken and inserted immediately. I reduce the height and take several cuttings from this reduction. Spring through to late summer
