I dont know the name of mine. It is green grows huge heads on it and turns a red color in hot sun. Then reverts to green once it gets taken out of warm sunlight.

Name clarification; it is a cultivar of Aeonium arboreum, not a species:

Aeonium arboreum 'Schwarzkopf'

i know

actually it is aeonium aboreum atropupereum "schwarzkopf"

its a bit like agaves

agave americana variagata mediopicta alba
or just agave mediopicta alba which is easier?

My list, with apologies to Call and Conifers for keeping the names short:

Arboreum variegatum
balsamiferum
cuneatum
haworthii
'magnificum'
'Schwartzkopf '
'voodoo'

Most of these are in multiples.

It might be late in the year to strike cuttings, Call, but my haworthii is smothered in rosettes and you're welcome to try one or two now. If they don't take ask me again next Spring.

at the last count up........... probably in excess of 30 cultivars... maybe 40

plant numbers though............. 70+

yes i am probably addicted to them...

i prefer the darker varieties, or the taller and larger headed type...

i take cuttings from jan to nov, they will take pretty much anytime, given a little bottom heat they will soon be away.

any excess plants i sell on eBay, and end up buying new plants .. the most ive spent was a few weeks ago for a new cultivar from america, that was about £25..

i've probably got a few of the ones your after Greville, i'd just have to look in the greenhouse at the weekend for you

Very kind of you, Dave, but I think it's Call that has broadcast his wish list :lol:
