    Small, branching variegated Aeonium with tricolor leaves (red, white, green). Unlike other older, more common variegated Aeoniums, this plant seems to be relatively weak and vulnerable to too much sun. Dramatic seasonal variation occurs: winter leaves are greener, more numerous, longer, and with a rounded tip; summer leaves are redder, darker, fewer, shorter, and nearly truncate (flattish) at the tip. Reversions (loss of the white stripes) sporadically pop up and these rosettes seem to be stronger, so remove these branches to favor the variegated ones. Overpot slightly to encourage branching.

    I find this variegate rather weak despite being a complex hybrid. It lacks any significant hybrid vigor. It's complex parentage is something along the lines of:
    (Arboreum 'Variegata' x 'Garnet') x 'velour'.

    Both 'Garnet' and 'Velour' are Zwartkop hybrids, Garnet being a hybrid with tabuliforme, and Velour being a hybrid with canariense. The Variegated arboreum parent is a tricolored variegate.
