ISI 2020-8. Aeonium castello-paivae ‘Suncup’

This charming selection was received, unlabeled, from the Jerry Barad collection in 2015 but matches well with plants of this cultivar illustrated on the International Crassulaceae Network website. Like the species, it forms a low shrublet to a foot or two tall and wide, seeming no less vigorous than non-variegated plants. Rosettes mature at about 5 – 6 cm (2 – 2.5") diameter and in good light are tightly packed at the stem tip concealing the branching structure within the mound. The leaves are splashed with varying degrees of creamy yellow among the normal light green. We offer rooted cuttings of HBG 124035. $7.
