Possessing pristine rosettes of buttermilk-yellow foliage brushed with broad strokes of luscious green down the middle and finer strokes of fire-brick red round their borders, Green Sunset Succulent offers variegated pizazz to any desk or table it graces. During the summer, this attractive succulent yields delicate, lemon-yellow flowers in the shapes of stars. Otherwise known as Aeonium 'Green Sunset', Aeonium Sunburst, Green Sunset, and Copper Pinwheel, it features an explosion of colors reminiscent of sunrises and sunsets. Pet friendly and low maintenance, Green Sunset Succulent enables you to bring the sun’s brilliance into your home or office with minimal work or worry.

Best Locations For Growing Green Sunset Aeonium

While Green Sunset Succulent tolerates medium light, bright indirect light will improve the intensity of its variegated colors. This striking, no-fuss houseplant prefers temperatures ranging from 65° to 75°F and humidity levels between 40% to 60%. A kitchen or bathroom are ideal spots to place this houseplant. Since this petite pot of sunshine is nontoxic to people and pets, you don’t have to worry about little hands or paws if they come into contact with it; they will be just fine.

Green Sunset Aeonium Sunlight Requirements

Preferring bright direct to indirect light, place Green Sunset Succulent near an east-facing window in order to provide direct morning sun but shade in the afternoon.

Green Sunset Aeonium Care

Plant Green Sunset Succulent in slightly damp, loamy soil with a pH of 5.6 to 6.0.  Amend the soil with sand to increase its ability to drain. Repot it every one to two years. This low-maintenance succulent does not require frequent pruning.To encourage bushy growth, trim as needed. If you desire to add a little more sunshine to your home or office, you can propagate this houseplant easily using cuttings. 

Watering Green Sunset Aeonium

Water Green Sunset Succulent when the soil is dry. If the top 2-3 inches are dry to the touch, water deeply. Succulents are sensitive to overwatering and should be given time to dry out between waterings.

Feeding Green Sunset Aeonium

Feed this succulent monthly with a balanced water-soluble fertilizer, diluted to 50% of the recommended strength, except during the summer, or its dormant period.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
