Succulent: Purple Aeonium Has Emerging Rosettes

Take heart: when a branch snaps off of a healthy purple aeonium, with time, new rosettes will form at where the branch broke off. I’ve had a few branches break down in recent months (and have planted them elsewhere in my garden) but it is always encouraging to see that where a seemingly sad garden event occurred, in its place, a happy garden event is waiting to happen.IMG_3229

Check out the very tiny rosettes that are just beginning to form at one of these branch-break sites. As these new rosettes mature and larger, it will not surprise me if  yet another break happens at this particular site as well. That’s just what happens with aeonium when they get mature, tree-like in height, and weighed down with large and heavy rosettes. Of course, this plant’s endgame is to have me populate my entire garden with all of these broken-off branches until it will be just a jungle of purple aeoniums – not a bad situation to be in by the way!
