Let's take a trip this week to Oregon and visit the lovely gardens created by Lynn Smith and her husband, Cliff. It's always fun to step out of our own climate to see what grows well in another, and sometimes it's even more fun to see what our climates have in common. You are going to love what you see!

Aeoniums grow actively during the cooler months, generally November through May or June. They like full sun in the cooler months of the year, during the hot summer months they will benefit from having protections from the hot daytime sun.

During the summer it is their dormant time, so you will want to water sparingly. I only water mine once every week or two during the summer.

They are not frost hardy, so you need to bring them indoors before frost.

There really is no information that I could find on this particular Aeonium, if any one finds information please post it here.
