      They have enjoyed the warmer weather this year. Time almost to bring them inside, they’re not fond of the wet.

    I like that dark colour. Is is a Succulent?
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      It is indeed. They’ll be moved indoors soon, but it has been a good summer for them.

    I didn’t realise that’s what it’s called and have just got one. I love their flowers.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I don’t think it will ever flower for me, but they do in some of the more sheltered gardens here.

      1. kzmcb says:

        Perhaps I’ve got something similar but different, then, since people have them in the sun here, and they flower in winter.

          I have seen then flowering over on St Michael’s Mount, but my garden is too exposed and not warm enough even in a hot summer like we have had.

    I like these. A lot! But I don’t actually have one.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Well you could certainly grow them and leave outside all year.

      1. restlessjo says:

        Absolutely! Next time we’re at the garden centre…

  5. The colour combination on the leaves is lovely. I thought I had lost mine, as the plants fell over during the heavy rains we had, but they have come back and are starting to look lovely again.

  6. We have a couple of these in pots back home on the West Coast – such a beautiful plant!

      And easy to propagate when they get too leggy.

  7. I’ve seen these many times but I never knew they had such an unusual name.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Lots of Aeoniums, but these are the most dramatic, though I think there is another very dark one.

let's have a conversation...
