This plant is an opportunistic grower. With mosture It grows very well and easily in all seasons in mild climates like its native Mediterranean-style climate.
It grows in full sun year round in North San Diego County 7 miles from Pacific Coast where it often reaches up to 18" in diameter.
It appears to be a form of Davidbramwellii. It very well may be one of the many cultivar hybrids that stay relatively true in seedlings with reversion to variegation from its seeded parent. It has some resemblance to some of the dozen or so images of the species davidbramwellii captured in situ in In Rudolf Schulz's "Aeoium In Habitat and Cultivation". The authors indicate that "The plant appears to be a form of davidbramwellii.".

Beautiful plant. I have it on a south facing balcony kind of sheltered by other potted plants.
It got some sunburn a couple weeks ago when we had 110 degree temps, but other than that, easy to grow!

THis is one of my favorite Aeoniums, and I find it very easy to grow here in California. From a cutting, just stick in soil, and I have yet to have one not take. Howeve, in THIS inland climate, it is NOT a good full sun plant, at least in the summer. I have many cuttings/plants growing around the yard, and all the ones in summer get necrotic patches on the leaves, and the rosettes shrink a bit (see latest photo). The great thing about them, other than the spectacular colors, is they slowly change their color patterns over a year period, rarely looking the same from month to month. Sometimes they are nearly pure pale yellow, others pale green, but most of the time, some striped transition in between.
