Aeonium?

Post by ElieEstephane » Tue Sep 05, 2017 11:50 am

Asked for a cutting and got the whole plant. What do you think is it? Aeonium maybe or some crassulate?
Thanks for any help!

If an Aeonium at all, than haworthii. It's so bushy! At first glimpse it looks like Euphorbia balsamifera. (Both plants from the Canary Islands)

It's definitely an aeonium since flowers are on dead stems. A. Haworthii seems to fit!
Thanks Tofterigen!

Sedum palmeri seems to fit better.

Sedum palmeri was my first thought as well... however, the plant seems to be a bit too robust and I am also confused by the wooden stems.

I attributed the wooden stems to old age. The plant must be around 7-10 years old since it completely fills a 12" pot.
Most of the sedum rubrotinctom species found in nature here have hard wooden stems too.
Thanks for the reply!
