Aeonium 'Sunburst' is an intensely variegated succulent featuring a branching growth habit, maturing into a small shrub up to 2 feet tall and wide. The white and green leaves will stress to a bright, sunny yellow in the center when contented with their growing conditions, thus giving the plant its name!
Bright sun is the key to this succulent’s signature appearance, so be sure to place it in a location where it will receive at least 6 hours of light per day. In terms of watering, its roots are sensitive to dampness, so utilize the ‘soak and dry’ method, watering thoroughly only once the soil has had a chance to completely dry. Porous soil mix in a well-draining pot will round out ‘Sunburst’s basic care.
Watch for white blooms in the summer months – although this variety is monocarpic, meaning that the flowering rosette will die back after blooming, the other branches will quickly make up for the loss! In the winter months, be sure to protect the leaves from frost, as ‘Sunburst’ is not cold hardy.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
