|CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT
We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. 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 a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
Aeonium nobile, native to the Canary Islands, is considered to be the largest of all Aeoniums. Forms rosettes to 12" or more in diameter with fleshy, broad, somewhat triangular leaves. Leaves blush reddish in bright light. Inflorescence is somewhat flattened and wider towards top, often to several feet in diameter. Hundreds of star-shaped red flowers (very unusual for Aeonium as flowers are usually yellow or cream in color) comprise long-lasting inflorescence. Excellent in landscape. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright light to full sun with ample airlfow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Summer dormant. Protect from frost.
