Shrubby branches to 3 or 4 ft. tall. Yellow pyramidal bloom stalks can sap the energy right out of the plant, killing it or setting it back for a couple years, so we like to cut them off before they get too big.<br /><br />Cultivated from Aeonium atropurpureum which has the same dark color, but only on the leaf margins.<br /><br />We’ve cultivated a variety we’re calling &quot;Whippet&quot; because it’s so fast growing. It’s shorter, and midway between A. atropurpureum and &quot;Schwartzkopf&quot; in color.<br /><br />
