This succulent plant is producing eye-catching inflorescences in the Oceanic Islands House.
Reaching 90cm in height and spread this succulent subshrub has rosettes of fleshy spoon-shaped leaves which earn it the specific Latin name spathulatum (spoon-shaped). Each plant can produce several cymes of many star-shaped yellow flowers. A native of the Canary Islands Aeonium spathulatum has evolved and adapted to survive in this remote habitat. It is one of 30 species of evergreen succulents from Madeira, the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, and north and east Africa. All require glasshouse cultivation in areas where temperatures fall below 10°C.
