(Syn: Aeonium complanatum cristatum)
CACTUSPEDIA       

 


Aeonium tabuliforme cristata
This is a rather unusual crested form of the normal species tabulaeforme. Like the parent it has many of the same features, only on a smaller scale and multi branched.

 

Description: Like most crests it will form some wild shapes. It slowly grows into an undulating mound of twisted fan shaped sections and seems to to change in and out of its crested mode during the years.  A true oddity!
