Aeonium (Giant Houseleek)

« Previous  1 2 Next »
May 2019
Throughout the month of May all seed packages from Aeonium, Aichryson and Greenovia are discounted by 30%.

Giant Sempervivum or Giant Houseleek is made up of some 47 known plus a couple of recently discovered species, out of which only 6 naturally occur outside the Canary Islands. They are typical succulents from this beautiful archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, where they conquered almost all habitats: the lower dry succulent zone, the dry pine tree forest, the rather moist, evergreen laurel forest and last but not least the subalpine zone at some 2.200m (on Tenerife). They are still rather uncommon plants with sometimes astonishingly large, usually bright yellow to white, compact inflorescences (in Aeonium nobile these are intense orange-red) with numerous flowers. They are easily cultivated if kept rather dry and sunny in winter at a minimum of some 15°C. For more cultivation information please have at look at this page: Sowing and cultivation of Aeonium, Aichryson and Greenovia.
In a very unfortunate publication in 1989, a complete mess has been produced in this genus by some "researcher" (H.Y. Liu) who has never investigated any Aeonium species in situ. We mostly do not follow these changes and keep the old names, as some future study with more state-of-the-art analysis methods will for sure reveal some very different relationships.
Sow dust-like seeds flat on any well drained soil, keep soil slightly moist from beneath. Do not cover seeds with soil.
50 seeds per package.

Legal note: In accordance with national German laws (BNatSchG and BArtSchV) as well as European (Bern Convention) international conventions (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora - CITES) we do not sell any wild collected material such as seeds from protected plants. Seeds from protected plants exclusively derives from horticulturally artificially propagated plants in Germany respectively Lebanon only, where plants have been taken into cultivation in the late 70ies and early 80ies of the last century.

Aeonium calderense sp. nov. ined. Exclusive

Aeonium calderense sp. nov. ined. Exclusive

100cm, only in 2001 recognized as a new species by Malkmus-Hussein, B. It is native of the southern lower parts of the Caldera de Taburiente of La Palma, where it is rather widespread. It has probably not been recognized as a distinct species, but been mistaken as Aeonium davidbramwellii from which it greatly differs in various aspects. In contrast to the latter its leaves are oblong-spathulate, yellowish green with a red shade and a layer of white wax. Unlike Aeonium davidbramwellii these plants branch freely and gain up to 100cm. Rosettes are slightly smaller, up to 20cm ø. Its inflorescence is of a perfectly cylindrical shape (in Aeonium davidbramwellii it has always a flattened conical shape) and reaches up to 40cm in height, flowers have not been observed so far. It is growing in completely open and sun exposed rocky soils. In general Aeonium davidbramwellii prefers rather partially shaded positions. VI-VIII.
