Called Greenovia Dodrentalis, these succulents have curved layered petals that make the plants look just like roses. Mostly they’re found in the Canary Islands but we would say they belong somewhere in a fairy tale because of how unique and magical they look! If you like anything unusual, you’ll just love these rose-shaped beauties.
Greenovias are rare & endangered in their native Canary Islands, rarely seen in botanical collections, & almost impossible to find in the nursery trade! This species is from the island of Tenerife, where populations of the plant have been harassed by tourists who take them as souvenirs (very bad!). Each rosette is less than 4”, & is monocarpic, though the plant will create a small number of offsets before blooming.
