aeonium 'Logan Rock'


Aeonium 'Logan Rock' is a striking succulent with rosettes that resemble flowers. The leaves are fleshy and smooth, forming a tight, layered structure that spirals around a central point. Their color is a harmonious blend of greens with touches of bronze or red, especially around the edges, which becomes more pronounced when the plant is stressed, such as by cold or drought. The plant has a glossy appearance, with leaves that can sometimes appear almost waxy. Aeonium 'Logan Rock' showcases its rosettes atop sturdy stems, which contribute to the plant's overall sculptural form, giving it a somewhat architectural presence in gardens or arrangements. The plant's succulent leaves are arranged in such a way that they can store water, enabling it to withstand periods without rainfall. When it blooms, it produces conical clusters of small, star-shaped flowers that can add an extra element of visual interest to the plant.

  • water dropWater

    Aeonium 'Logan Rock', commonly known as Tree Houseleek, should be watered thoroughly only when the soil is completely dry. It's crucial to avoid letting the roots sit in water, so ensure proper drainage. Typically, this means watering about once every two weeks, but this can vary depending on the plant's environment, particularly humidity and temperature. When it's time to water, pour water slowly at the base of the plant until it begins to drain freely from the bottom of the pot; this might amount to a couple of ounces for small pots or up to a gallon for larger outdoor planters. During the winter months, water less frequently, as the plant enters a dormant period and consumes less water.

  • sunLight

    Aeonium 'Logan Rock' thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. A spot near a south or west-facing window where it receives filtered sunlight for most of the day is ideal. If grown outdoors, it prefers partial shade, especially in the afternoon when the sun is most intense, as it can scorch the leaves.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Aeonium 'Logan Rock' prefers temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit during active growth. It can survive in temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit but should be protected from frost, which can be lethal. Temperature conditions that are consistently outside of these ranges can negatively affect the plant's health.

  • scissorsPruning

    Pruning Aeonium 'Logan Rock' helps maintain its shape and encourage fuller growth. Trim off dead or damaged leaves as needed throughout the year to improve the plant's appearance and health. The best time to prune more extensively is in the early spring, before the growth season begins. Overgrown stems can be cut back to a preferred size, which can also promote branching.

  • circleLife cycle

    Aeonium 'Logan Rock', commonly known as Logan Rock Aeonium, typically begins life as a seed, though many aeoniums are also propagated through cuttings. Once germinated, the seedling develops into a rosette-forming succulent, exhibiting fleshy leaves and a central stem. The Logan Rock Aeonium grows actively during cooler seasons, often becoming dormant in hot summer months. As it matures, it produces offsets or "pups" at the base or between leaves, which can be separated and planted to propagate new plants. After several years, it may send up a flowering stalk with yellow flowers, usually indicating the plant is nearing the end stage of its life cycle, as aeoniums are monocarpic and die after flowering. The seeds from the flowers can then begin the cycle anew if they find suitable growing conditions.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • Aeonium 'Logan Rock', more commonly known as Logan Rock Aeonium, is usually propagated during its active growing period, which is primarily in the cooler seasons such as spring or fall. The most popular method for propagating this succulent is by stem cuttings. To do this, a healthy piece of stem with a rosette at the end is cut from the main plant using a clean, sharp knife. The cutting should be about 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 centimeters) long. The cut end of the stem is then left to dry for a few days until a callus forms over the wound to prevent rot. Once callused, the cutting can be planted in a well-draining soil mix, slightly burying the callused end into the soil. The soil should be kept slightly moist until the cutting has rooted and starts showing signs of growth, which typically takes several weeks.
