Aeonium "Sunburst" is an ever-changing colorful succulent. The colors are dramatic and bright. No wonder they call it a 'Sunburst'. The leaves are variegated and flat with a mix of pink and yellow. In full sun the margins on the leaves turn bright pink. Aeoniums go through a dormancy period in the summer, during this time the leaves curl into their centers to protect them from the sun and stop growing. When fall arrives, the leaves open and stretch to become big colorful rosette that look like daisies. One of our personal favorites here at Succy Crafts! It is important to know that Aeonium varieties are monocarpic. Meaning that after they bloom they die, but off set baby plants that will live on.

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

Great little succulent.
Shipped quickly, packed well, arrived intact. Plant as described.
I was so excited to get it but it started dying when it arrived. It only lasted a couple of days. All my other purchases have been great.
This aptly named plant looks so pretty. It was slightly mushed when it arrived but bounced back into shape within a day of being transplanted. Will have to get a couple more of these.
Cutie, It is as described
Very exotic darling. This one was for my granddaughters collection; liked it so much I ordered another for me!
