You misconstrue Davids.......
they arent grown for their stems. The stems are disguised. however, have you seen aeoniums soaring high in the sun? Imagine agapanthus without their stems! Stipa gigantea without "leggy" stems! nobody says I love those stems of any of these.......the flowers or foliage are held aloft.
No doubt dwarf aeoniums will be bred but, apart from their initial novelty, they will never replace aeoniums as we know them
