Aeonium arboreum is a sparsely branched succulent subshrub to 1.5m, with terminal rosettes of fleshy spoon-shaped leaves and large conical panicles of small yellow flowers
A. tabuliforme is a succulent biennial or perennial forming a compact, flat rosette of overlapping, fleshy light green leaves. Large panicles of small, starry yellow flowers
A. canariense var. subplanum is succulent, to around 30cm tall, that forms cupped rosettes of glossy, light green, rounded leaves, tinged pink in dry or cold situations. Flowers can be produced in spring; a pale yellow flower spike emerging from the centre of a rosette. This rosette will then die, but will have formed offsets at its base to grow on
A. simsii is a low-growing, branching, evergreen succulent to 20cm tall forming dense cushions of small rosettes. Each rosette has strap-shaped, fleshy green leaves with pointed tips and margins edged with translucent hairs; leaves may become tinged with red in bright light. In spring, flat-topped clusters of small, yellow flowers are borne on red stems above the rosettes
'Merry Maiden' is a perennial succulent sub-shrub, up to 60cm high, freely-branched and compact, with leaf rosettes which are dark red with green centres
'Logan Rock' is a succulent, evergreen perennial of compact, branching habit, with rosettes that are bright green in the centre, surrounded by long, narrow, pointed leaves in a very dark, bronzy, red-brown
'Blushing Beauty' is a branched, upright succulent up to 1m tall, with rosettes of glossy, light green, spoon-shaped leaves, flushed with red round the edges. Flowers can be produced in spring; a pale yellow flower spike emerging from the centre of a rosette. This rosette will then die, but will have formed offsets at its base to grow on
A. nobile is an evergreen, monocarpic succulent forming large rosettes 30-50cm across of thick, fleshy, olive green leaves; the leaves flush orange and red in bright light conditions. After several years, mature plants produce panicles of small, red, star-shaped flowers in spring held on a red stem up to 1.2m tall
'Poldark' is a bushy, evergreen succulent to 60cm tall forming a branching mound of fleshy-leaved rosettes. Each rosette comprises deep purple to black outer leaves with green inner leaves
'Kiwi' is an evergreen, branching succulent to 60cm tall forming small rosettes 7-12cm across. Each rosette comprises fleshy, spoon-shaped leaves that are creamy-yellow and green with red edges. Racemes of yellow flowers are borne above the foliage in late spring
