Slim wiry stalks topped with congestions of wide cillate leaves with their variegated broadened tips suggesting fashion conscious nails painted lime cream--this variegation trailing on up the margin of each of the waxy dainty leaves. The beautiful colorations seems always to be especially much more bright in the cooler winter months when new growth flourishes. Characteristically stops growing during exceptional summer heat--so be careful of overwatering during that season. Usually ( in the category of "This Is The End of Culture As We Know It") this Aeonium cultivar is marketed in the language of terminal cute as "Kiwi Krassula" in California.
|Cultural Code||CGH HP|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
