Madeline Luscher, a sophmore at Presentation High School, was intrigued by the shape, beauty, pattern and texture of these aeoniums, which she came across while walking her dog in the Willow Glen area of San Jose. Aeoniums are a subtropical succlent in the family of Crassulaceae. They can thrive on benign neglect and are easy to grow from cuttings. Like many succulents, they can be frost tender, so grow them in protected areas next to houses or other structures. Grown in groupings, they will take on a domed shape.
