Q.

Will aeoniums die after blooming?

Zone La crescenta, CA 91214 | Faymlittle added on January 20, 2017 | Answered

I planted A. arboreum for the leaf color contrast and drought tolerance. A group of 4 stems, each 3 ft high with 10" rosettes, are all blooming. I don't want them to bloom. How do I rescue them?

Most Aeoniums are a monocarpic species, meaning it dies after flowering.
A life expectancy is 3 to 10 years for it to reach maturity.
Flowering can be avoided by clipping off the flower heads as the emerge.
You can also propagate by taking cuttings.
