Aeonium arboreum, named also tree houseleek, or Irish rose, is one of the most traded species. Firstly, it is a succulent that can reach up to 2m in height and forms bright green rosettes of glossy, fleshy, dark-purple leaves atop branching stems. Moreover, many shoots form under each rosette and quickly form new stems. Afterwards, in spring, large pyramidal panicles of bright yellow flowers appear. After that, each rosette that bloom dies.

Aeonium arboreum appreciates the full-sun but the partial shade in the hottest hours. water moderately 1 to 3 times a month, only when the soil is really dry.
