This rarely-seen succulent plant has numerous starry heads of bright yellow flowers which open on hairy stems above congested rosettes of pointed, hairy rosettes. This one of the prettiest and most amenable aeoniums you can grow in a pot as it does not expand on long woody stems like so many of the others in this genus. In the wild it grows on rocks and cliffs in the Tirajana Valley on the Island of Gran Canaria.
For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Do not cover with compost but just gently water the seeds in. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot.
