Aeonium are a fantastic succulents which come in so many forms there is with out a doubt one (or many!) for everyone.
Balsamiferum is a subshrub succulent growing stems with glossy green rosettes of leaves, these do flower but are grown more as a foliage plant. They require gritty free draining soil and can be grown in containers or the open ground. If growing outside ensure a sheltered free draining spot is chosen, these do not like their roots to be sat wet. They are hardy in mild areas and are grown as houseplant or brought in during the winter elsewhere.
Fantastic in coastal gardens as these tolerate the poor soils and salty air well but dont plant in fully exposed positions.
A fantastic addition to any place large or small. comes in a 7cm pot
