Dinner plate aeonium
Dinner plate aeonium is so-called because the large rosettes of overlapping, spade-shaped leaves form bowl-shaped clusters. It is native to the Canary Islands of Tenerife and La Gomera.
Identification: This plant forms a rosette up to 18" (45 cm) wide, on a stem as much as 3' (91 cm) high. It has a large, dome-shaped flower cluster for a few weeks each year. The central cluster will not branch unless its central point is damaged.
