Aeoniums grow in a bush shape with rosettes on the ends of long stems. Aeoniums grow most actively from winter thru spring. During this time they should be watered whenever the soil dries out. They also appreciate a diluted fertilizer during their growing period. In the summer heat Aeoniums are semi-dormant, reducing their need for water. Green varieties will look better with some light shade while dark varieties have the best coloring in full sun. Because Aeonium like conditions that aren't too hot or too cold or too dry, they are very adaptable as a houseplant. These easy care succulent plants look great in containers or in the landscape of temperate climates. Similar to Sempervivum, most aeoniums will die after flowering. Aeonium are native to the Canary Islands, Cape Verde Isles and Morocco.
