Neutral palmbob On Nov 30, 2010, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

I had seen hybrids of this for years but never came across the pure species until just recently... it is no wonder it is not a commonly grown plant... it is a low-growing, very soft, flismy-leaved plant that frankly looks a lot more like a weed than a rare succulent. Leaves have a row of fine, parallel hairs along the leaf margins. It is unlike any other Aeonium I have seen.
