    A. decorum is a variable species. The diameter of the rosette can range from 1.5 to 4 inches. Colors can be variable from clone to clone, and depending on sun exposure. Plants grown in the shade are usually a dark green color, but in full sun they can range from a reddish orange to bronze color. This plant is commonly confused with two of its close relatives, A. haworthii and A. leucoblepharum.
    It is known to form hybrids with A. canariense and A. castello-paive.

    The 'Fairy wings' and 'Cooperi' cultivars are all delicate, small, and heavily rosetting varieties. The variety Decorum var. Guarimarense is much larger and sturdier than the regular A. decorum. This variety is very rare in cultivation, but can be found. Most of the plants in cultivation labeled as Guarimarense are in fact A. Haworthii.

  • Posted by Aeonium2003 on May 9, 2022 1:47 PM concerning plant:
    Flowers are white, usually with a pinkish tinge in full sun, but streaked with green in the shade. Flowers are star shaped, and do not open as much as other Aeonium species.
