Intro: Tree aeonium plants are interesting succulents that come in green or purple (the purple color comes out more intensely in the sun and less so when kept in shady balcony gardens). The tree aeonium has yellow flowers, but the branch that flowers will always die after the flowering event. The tree aeonium plant can grow to 3 feet in the balcony container garden.
Scientific Name: Aeonium arboreum
Plant Type: Succulent plant
Light: Full sun
Propagation: Propagate tree aeoniums by taking cuttings or dividing the plant.
Misc. Info: Too much heat will make the tree aeonium's thick, rubbery leaves curl, and freezing temperatures will melt the leaves, but these succulent plants usually come back. Use these plants in succulent container gardens in which multiple cacti and succulents are planted in an interesting plant container. These succulent plants fit in well in a Southwest inspired balcony garden theme.
