A succulent Garden San Diego style

This tassely wonderfulness is actually the flower of a very common succulent: Aeonium. Succulents don't get a lot of good press about their flowers, so when I came across this one in Golden Hill, I had to stop and snap a photo of it. Yes, it is green instead of some bright and flashy color, but just for the Doctor Seuss quality of it, it gets my thumbs up!


  1. that is a cool plant, how long would a plant like that be in flower for?

  2. More than a month! Remember, though, that once it is done flowering, that stem will die. Just remove it and allow the others to grow up and take its place.
