20 (25)cm ø, Canary Golden Mountain Rose is probably the most frequently cultivated species within this genus and besides Greenovia diplocycla it is the largest Greenovia, gaining up to 25cm in diameter which in combination with its bluish and glaucous leaves makes it for sure one of the most attractive as well ! It is native of Gran Canaria, Tenerife, El Hierro, La Gomera, and La Palma growing in rock crevices on north-facing mountain slopes in the pine-tree zone at an elevation of some 1.000m through 1.900m. Populations from Greenovia described from La Palma belong either to a subspecies or the closely related Greenovia diplocycla. Greenovia aurea has rather large, creamy yellow flowers in May to June/July. Greenovia aurea can easily be propagated either by offsets or seeds. IV-VI.
