Wanted: Aeonium haworthii

Aeonium haworthii
Do you have any in your garden?
A unique aspect of our float this year will be the use of a particular succulent in a geometric design.  But we need to find enough  aeonium haworthii, to make the design work.  These plants are very common in the gardens in and around Sierra Madre, so hopefully you can help us.  Don’t cut your plant now!!  If you have some to donate, call the float barn at 626-355-7005 or email us, volunteers@smrosefloat.org with your name, phone number and address and we will come out and look at your plant. The picture shows a red edge to the “rosette” but we also want the all-green variety.  We will be ready for them in early December.  Now for the details – each “rosette” needs to be between 2 ½ - 3 ½ inches across and have an attached stem of at least 1 ½ inches.  We don’t want to destroy your plant – we just need a handful of rosettes from each one.


We are building "I Think I Can", a float based on a concept that was submitted by three different designers.
