General Care for Aeonium ‘Mardi Gras’
Aeonium ‘Mardi Gras’ is an excellent addition to outdoor gardens. It grows well in the ground or in container gardens. It gets its name for the colorful Mardi Gras festival. It is a hybrid of Aeonium ‘Velour’ and another unspecified Aeonium.
Aeonium ‘Mardi Gras’ has typical watering needs for a succulent. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.
Where to Plant
‘Mardi Gras’ is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 20° F (-6.7° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun.
Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day. If planting indoors, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere). Supplement with a grow light if you notice stretching.
