Beautiful plant Sandra.I'm on weekend duty at Kew at the moment and I have just been watering the Aeonium collection!

ohh i'm so jealous. i have managed to get about 8 varieties so far. not sure what they are all called though....how many varieties has kew got? i think theres lots.

Wow, I had no idea these plants got so big. Well done!

i went to the scilly isles a few years ago and was amazed at how big they can get.

I have just counted 28 species and a few unamed varieties. I'm spending a week in Penzance mid October and we have booked a day trip to Tresco. I'll give you a full report on the Aeonium situation!

it was november when we were there. the weather was lovely. the plants were just at they're best. we didnt get to tresco because of the sailings of the ferry and shorter days. but st. marys was lovely. i lost most of my carpobrotus edulis last winter and i was woundering how it faired in cornwall after the harsh winter? hope u have a lovely time..;-))

Sandra:

If you want to see many gigantic specimens of Aeonium species growing wild...you must visit the Central and Southern California Coast...some species grow more than 6 feet / 2 meters tall...with very long leaves (to almost 3 feet or 1 meter long). Carmel by the Sea south of Monterey in Central California has got to have one of the largest, most impressive collections in the state. The flowers themselves can reach 5 feet / 1.5 meters tall or more. It's worth the visit. : > )

in my dreams.......i've seen them about four feet tall on the scilly isles off the south coast of britain. maybe with my new greenhouse we can grow some bigger ones...;-))

Sandra:

Yes, in the ground in a greenhouse they should grow very large and tall.

I would love to see them Delonix, to see what species they are. Probably A. arboreum, any chance of pictures?

Rbtkew:

The most common Aeonium species grown here are:
arboreum, decorum, floribundum (A. simisii x A. spathulatum hybrid), hawarthii, urbicum, canariense, nobile, and many other hybrids and varieties. A. arboreum grows the tallest...I've seen it just over 6 feet/ 2 meters tall in Central California's Coast, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Sandra:

I'm hoping to make a visit to the San Francisco Bay Area soon to visit my mother. I hope to get some good photos then. : > )
