Yum yum - sounds delicious, and looks just as nice.

I love this little Aeonium, it's so forgiving of my terrible plant growing methods. I underwater it, sometimes neglecting it for weeks, and it forgives me and simply grows even more.

During the winter the leaves go plain green, and as soon as the weather warms up and it gets more light, the gorgeous sunset colours come out.

I'm never sure if they are caused by light levels, length of the light, or warmth.

Whatever it is, I love it, and hope I can keep this great little plant happy and thriving. Every year I simply cut the tops off to plant in a really thick and lush planter, where I use other Aeonium such as Schwartzkopf for it's height, several tender Sedum to trail over the edge and take on the role of filler, and some other tender succulents. The thicker the planting, the better.
