The Aeoniums love the hot weather!


This heatwave and baking sunshine has brought the best colour out of my Aeonium “Zwartkop” that I have ever had.
By the way, the original of this plant was a piece broken of a large plant, outside a bar in Menorca 30 years ago.
Is that still not allowed by my critics in another thread?

The third pic. is of Aeonium arboreum.

I love aeoniums and these are awesome! My Zwartkop has coloured up well this year too:)

These plants are growing all over The Scilly Isles. As plentiful as weeds! I did enjoy seeing them. Glad they are doing well for you this year.

These are lovely plants. I've had several over the years.

"the original ... was a piece broken of a large plant, outside a bar in Menorca 30 years ago". A likely tale! ;o)

It's a stunner! I'm getting a bit of a 'pash' for succulents as I start thinking about my new little yard. Broke my rule last weekend and bought a strawberry pot (not to mention a few others) on offer in a garden centre - but the pots were too good to be ue at half price.
