What an amazing flower, is it in someone's garden or growing wild?

A favourite of mine, I love Aeoniums.

It's in someone's garden. Although, many species of Aeonium do grow wild along the California coast.

You'd love it here, then....as they are widely grown here in many yards.

I love aeoniums too. I saw some huge ones in Cornwall and took some back to France, but they didn't do well there...

Yes, they can grow pretty large here in California. Carmel by the Sea (along the central California coast) has some of the largest ones I've ever seen in my life.

As karenfrance says,Cornwall is the best place to see Aeoniums, and you will find magnificent specimens growing on the Isles of Scilly.

can they tolerate dry heat ? Are they to be treated as cactus? I got one on a trip, I dont know how will it do in my place.

they need more water than cacti but never let them sit in water. they are best kept frost free. not sure about your climate Mochiseki

Mochiseki:

It should grow very well in your hot subtropical climate.

It grows and looks best during very dry weather, when watered once a week. In very drought conditions it tends to look very sparse and the leaves are small.

wonderfull i think you live in a nice place. david

I think that they must like warm(ish) coastal air...

12 Jan, 2012

 

They grow well in hot inland areas, also. However, it's not a desert plant.

13 Jan, 2012

 

it think they do enjoy the coast here in europe...as its windy i think its less damp....so less chance of rotting...

Sandra:

Yes, do especially well along the coast. The largest and nicest ones I've ever seen where along the California coast.
