You’ll see the Aeonium Holochrysum plant just about everywhere in Mallorca. And right now, the green plant displays some beautiful, large, yellow, flowery clusters.
The Aeonium plant is a subtropical succulent native to North Africa, East Africa, Madeira, the Canary Islands and, quite obviously, the archipelago of the Balearic Islands. Aeonium is a genus of some 35 species belonging to the family of the Crassulaceae.
If you live in Mallorca, you might have one or the other species in your garden (I would be surprised if you hadn’t). If you have the Aeonium Holochrysum species in flower right now, you might agree with me in the delight of its lush if modest display.
