Aeonium ‘Velour’ is an attractive specimen once it reaches maturity. The leaves turn a very dark red with green centres in strong light levels. It has a lovely soft texture to its leaves, hence its name which is the French word for ‘velvet’. It will grow to form many stages of offsets, creating this Christmas tree-like form. Gets to a very large size so it needs lots of room to grow.
It is very popular because it is easy to grow. It also works as a wonderful beginner plant.
