Purple Aeonium Has Flower Buds

I have enjoyed watching my purple aeonium as it has matured. My plant has, on some years, produced conical flower spikes loaded with yellow flowers. I’m not sure this year if I will see flower cones, but I do see that at least three of my aeonium branches are showing flower buds. The contrast between vibrant green buds and purple-black petals is truly lovely and warms up my winter garden perfectly! In a few years since being moved from a simple plastic container to being planted in-ground, the succulent has grown quite tall and has produced many branches. Most of the petals are part of distinct flower-like rosettes; other petals, like those pictured, are like leaves dotting an elongated trunk, not looking like a rosette at all (more like a dragon!) – see the contrast in the photo of my aeonium forest! There are no words to describe how truly beautiful this plant is, such a head-turner and requires minimal care. I love it!IMG_3169IMG_3170
