    A small, herbaceous shaped succulent superficially resembling the related genus Aeonium. Plants are covered in trichomes save for the roots and flowers. Leaves are spoon shaped (thin near the base), growing in loose rosettes, which cease growing upon flowering and dry out. Flowers are yellow, resembling those of sempervivum (also related) and aeonium. Inflorescence is a bit chaotic, if it can be called such. Branches profusely.
    Stem is bright brown-red, turning woody as it ages. It prefers bright indoors to semi-shade outdoors, more water needy than the average succulent (echeveria, etc).
    It is one of the easier plants to grow, and seems to have picked up in popularity.
