Canary Island Native

The Canary island growing Aeonium has revived after I cut the diseased top off it.I hope it continues to grow into a beautiful black Rosette. It has new baby plants all over the top layer of the stem. They look like mushrooms when they grow wild, with the Creeping Rhizomes putting up new succulent growths.
Its been a long day so more posts tomorrow. Saturday is barbeque day and the rugby world cup final between England and South Africa. Come on Johnny Wilkinson!

What a unique little plant. I have never heard of it. Is this a succulent? How big does it get? I'm glad it is growing for you and healthy again. Good luck.

Hi Vanillalotus, It grows about a foot high, and is a succulent. I thought it liked dry but the guy at tatton said they grow in a wet conditions in the canary islands.I hope it grows healthy too. The black rosettes are gorgeous!

Hi David! I happened upon your blog while doing a search! I love succulents, and was looking for Canary Island Aeoniums! I think I may have to travel there to see these plants growing wild as they do there...would be cool to see. Thanks for the great picture. I will have a look at more of your blog now...
