"Rosas del Monte" (Mountain Roses) as they are called by the Canary inhabitants are close relatives of Aeonium within the family of Crassulaceae. Some 4 species are known. All have ornamental, dense rosettes of succulent, bluish-green leaves. The sulfur-yellow, quite large flowers are set in late spring to early summer in a short-stemmed raceme. The rare Greenovia aizoon differs in its' blackish-green, pubescent leaves in a miniature rosette. All Greenovia naturally occur in rock crevices in the drier zones of Gran Canaria and all Western Islands and are easily cultivated in any rich, well drained, slightly stony soil in a sunny spot. They require a sunny spot in winter with careful watering as the main growing season is from autumn to late spring. For more information on cultivation have a look at this page: Sowing and cultivation of Aeonium, Aichryson and Greenovia.
