Aeonium tabuliforme 'Hime Meikyou' - Dinner Plate SucculentRegular price $22.00
These Aeonium are native to Tenerife in the Canary Islands where they are found growing on rocky cliff faces ( thus no water pooling, partial protection from the sun). Known as the Dinner Plate Plant these plants only get to about 5cm high but a whopping 45cm in diameter. Plants are monocarpic and will die after flowering, even if they don't set seed however the dying mother plant will produce multiple offsets that will be clones. Keep watering to a minimum in summer when these plants go dormant.
