We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be
one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at different paces and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Aeonium decorum cv sunburst crested


It requires gritty well drained potting mix. Water deeply but infrequently. Plants are allowed to thoroughly dry in-between waterings.  During the winter months restrict water to about once a month, or just enough to keep the foliage from shrivelling. Position in full to part sun in a sheltered spot, but the bright light enhances the rich hues of the darker Aeoniums, and the subtle blushes of the other colours, but prefers light shade to shade in summer. The plants tend to go dormant in the summer and look a little tired sometimes, but they perk up again in the fall. Summer is the natural dormant season for this species in its native land. Needs protection from severe winter frosts (Hardy to -2°C or a little less for short periods), over winter under glass in all but the mildest of gardens. Propagation: It is easily propagated by cuttings in the spring. When the stem becomes too tall, just cut the top rosette with a piece of stem and plant it. It will soon take root, while the plant left with just the stem will soon grow new buds that can be in turn used for propagation. Time to take cuttings: April to JulyAeonium decorum crested are a beautiful and interesting multicolored plants. Aeonium decorum are green and white with pink edges. Scientists don't know what makes them crest. They do or don't and that's it. Some of my crested aeoniums are larger than 2' tall.
