Aeonium arboreum is a pretty, jade green succulent with an upright habit and lightly curved, smooth, smooth-shaped leaves with small leaf scars. Yellow, star-shaped flowers appear on mature plants in summer, borne in cone-shaped clusters at the end of the stems. The leaf rosettes die back after flowers are finished.

Aeonium arboreum ‘Velour’ has particularly lovely dark purple leaves, which contrast beautifully with bright yellow flowers.

For best results grow Aeonium arboreum ‘Velour’ in well-drained soil or containers in a sunny, sheltered position. Water plants sparingly. If not growing under glass, provide protection from frost or bring plants indoors in autumn.
