Description  

Aeonium decorum f. variegata is an evergreen, perennial, densely branched shrub up to 60 cm tall, with up to 7.5 cm wide rosettes, clustered on thick branches. The leaves are obovate to lanceolate, pale green luminous white variegation, up to 5 cm long and 1.5 cm wide, with orange-red tones and red leaf margins. The inflorescence rises above the foliage, bearing small soft pink flowers.

Environment

Aeonium  grows best in full sun during the cooler months and when grown in coastal areas. When grown inland or during the summer, provide this succulent with afternoon or partial shade. Avoid placing tree anemones in sites with western sun exposures..

Aeoniums do not like really hot or dry weather. They may go dormant in summer and do not require any water, except in very dry conditions. In extreme heat, their leaves will curl, to prevent excessive water loss. Growing them in moist shade will keep them growing, but their true growth season is winter to spring, when temperatures are cool and damp. In the winter, water whenever the soil has dried out.
