Purple Aeonium Fallen Branches Form a New Garden

In the past several days, my area has had rain and wind, which were catalysts to the breaking off of several branches of my purple aeoniums. Although a sad event, it is not an unexpected one since aeonium branches are not very strong. One too many rosettes and down they go. But these branches make for very easy propagation of new stand-alone purple aeonium plants. All you need to do is dig shallow holes in the ground, replace the dug-out soil, and water a bit so that the soil is moist but not soggy.IMG_3204

You can also simply place these broken branches into containers that contain potting soil and have stunning specimen plants. Check out my very “elaborate” support system to keep the newly planted branches from falling over – used plastic containers that have been stacked! Some of the broken branches had rosettes and others had fiery flower spikes. In a short time, these fallen branches will get taller and grow new rosettes, establishing a new purple aeonium garden.
