My new Aeonium Catlin Hybrid!!!!!

This amazing Aeonium is called "Bronze Tea Cup"! I just happen to work on a team at work called Bronze Team....we have all color named teams! Anyway this baby I found at Target tonight has charger plate size head on it!!! It says it will spread to cover a very large area, but I think I would like to keep it in a pot. It is absolutely stunning, and I am so proud to have it...I came right home and got it into a clay pot. OK...introducing...Ms. Bronze Tea Cup.....

What a score! I saw this one at Home Depot & resisted...as I have a couple other large ones (waiting for my decision what to do with them). I also doubt the name as tagged. I know of several Caitlin hybrids, but this isn't one of them. Could be a new one, I suppose! Still ~ a beauty!

It's got quite the dramatic glow thing going. Nice shots, Julie.

I have not heard of the variety Bronze Tea Cup. It looks like it should be called Bronze Dinner Plate!

I have seen this speices rot when the root ball was not large enough and the ground was warm and moist.

They seem to thrive even when somewhat root-bound. So I get a large pot only when the one they are in started tipping over from the weight of the plant.

Mark- thanks for your advice...i will wait to get a bigger pot for a while yet! I hope one day to prepare a rocky/sandy soil and prepare a bed for this plant, where it can really drain well, and get it outside!
