Aeonium simsii

Beautiful succulent that differs in part from the other species of the genus due to its lower and compact posture (it does not grow past 12-15 cm in height), but tends to make its slender woody stems branch abundantly. The rosettes are rather open, consisting of long, lanceolated leaves, strongly pointed at the apex and covered in a sort of fuzz that makes its green soft and opaque. When exposed to abundant sunlight, the succulent blesses us with wonderful reddish-burgunfìdy stripes along the surface of the lower foliage. The margins are enriched with microscopic translucent lashes, which gives to A. simsii a frayed and extremely characteristic appearance. The charm of this plant is strongly accentuated in spring, when at the apex of long stems flashy clusters of yellow flowers bloom.
