ISI 2020-09. Aeonium decorum Webb ex Bolle Out of Stock

One might be tempted to think from its epithet that this aeonium is decorated in some way with spots or other markings. In fact, the Latin decorum means elegant, a fitting description of this clone with rosettes of clean, plain green with red margins in the upper half of the obovate leaves which come to a slightly attenuate point. With magnification, minute pointed teeth are also revealed scattered along the margin. We offer rooted cuts of HBG 137668, a plant collected by Crassulaceae researcher at the University of Kansas, Mark Mort (03-1017) on La Gomera, one of the Canary Islands, Spain. $6.
