Aeonium 'Blushing Beauty' is an attractive succulent with rosettes of pale green leaves tinged with red on top of thick stems that grow up to 2 feet…
Aeonium 'Blushing Beauty': Nice rosette of pale green leaves with a coating of fine cilia. Pink blushing will intensify if the plant is moderately stressed by full sun and/or drought. The rosettes hold tight clusters and the stout stems grow up to 2.0' tall. This cultivar is a hybrid of A. canariense x A. arboreum 'Zwartkop'.
PLEASE NOTE: Leaves may curl or become bruised during shipping. They will recover with proper light and water and by growing and shedding old leaves. See photo examples:
Soft succulents will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They need bright sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again. Aeonium like less frequent watering during their summer dormancy period.
This variety is easy to re-root from stem cuttings. Look to our Succulent Cuttings Guide for tips on succulent propagation.
