Aeonium nobile

£10.98

Aeonium nobile is probably one of the most exciting and dramatic looking Aeonium species on the planet.

This Aeonium giant is a must in any collection, a truly stunning Aeonium with its unique growth formation and size not to mention a rewarding stunning floral display.

With ideal conditions, Aeonium nobiles can grow up to 3 feet across; each leaf can measure up to 10 inches wide and during the summer the outer leaves turn a beautiful coral colour.

After several years the Aeonium nobiles are mature enough to flower, unlike any other Aeonium they produce a spectacular scarlet-red 3 to 4ft flower spike with thousands of small individual flowers which will be loved by bees and other pollinators for months.

It has now become endangered in its natural habitat, making it an extremely rare plant to see in cultivation. Endemic to La Palma, Canary Islands.

During the season of 2018, we proudly had several of our most prized specimens come into full flower, surreal succulents pollinated these to produce the seed for the new stock we now have available. Making this a sustainably sourced rare succulent.

They make unbelievable potted succulent plants, a definite must for any collection.

Extremely drought tolerant, protect from frosts.
