Greenovia (Mountain Roses)

"Rosas del Monte" (Mountain Roses) as they are called by the Canary inhabitants are close relatives of Aeonium within the family of Crassulaceae. Some 4 species are known. All have ornamental, dense rosettes of succulent, bluish-green leaves. The sulfur-yellow, quite large flowers are set in late spring to early summer in a short-stemmed raceme. The rare Greenovia aizoon differs in its' blackish-green, pubescent leaves in a miniature rosette. All Greenovia naturally occur in rock crevices in the drier zones of Gran Canaria and all Western Islands and are easily cultivated in any rich, well drained, slightly stony soil in a sunny spot. They require a sunny spot in winter with careful watering as the main growing season is from autumn to late spring. For more information on cultivation have a look at this page: Sowing and cultivation of Aeonium, Aichryson and Greenovia.
Sow dust-like seeds flat on any well drained soil, keep soil slightly moist from beneath. Do not cover seeds with soil.

Greenovia diplocycla

Greenovia diplocycla

10 (20)cm ø, a species native to La Palma, El Hierro and la Gomera, where it shares similar habitats as Greenovia aurea, yet usually preferring more open locations in the lower zone of the pine-tree forest. Rosettes are usually some 10cm to 20cm in diameter, light yellowish green in full sun and finely white powered, if plants are grown in full sun. During their summer dormancy rosettes will close cup-like and are covered with beige-red, dry leaf sheaths. The flowers are larger than those in Greenovia aurea and young leaves are ciliated at their edges (use some magnifying glasses). Plants remain solitary and they will never form any offsets. Thus propagation is only possible by sowing seeds. Greenovia diplocycla botanically is a very diverse species with several forms and possible some varieties, so that further scientific work is required on their taxonomical status. For any rich, well drained substrate in a partially shaded (summer) to sunny (winter) spot. In winter water carefully and keep plants at a minimum of some 10°C. IV-VI.

Greenovia diplocycla var. gigantea var. nov. ined. Exclusive

Greenovia diplocycla var. gigantea var. nov. ined. Exclusive

30 (40) ø, an impressively large, only recently in 2001 by Malkmus-Hussein, B. recognized new variety. It is native to north-facing, partially shaded rocks in the northern and central parts of La Gomera. In contrast to the species, this variety is much larger in all parts. Its very large rosette of light green leaves is finely powdered with white wax and may gain up to 40cm in diameter. In contrast to Greenovia diplocycla its dormant rosette forms a perfect ball, covered in almost pure white dried leaf sheaths in summer - an utmost beautiful aspect! Its extraordinarily large inflorescence gains up to 30cm in height (!) and consists of up to 250 bright yellow single flowers from April through May/June. It occurs in a single small population in the North of La Gomera only. IV-VI.
