The Housetree leek plant is a sub-tropical succulent species that's primarily grown outdoors. However, being native to the sub-tropics enables the Aeonium arboreum to grow indoors.
Native to the delightful volcanic archipelago Canary Islands, the Houseleek tree within its natural habitat enjoys growing within hillsides and well balanced temperatures of this part of the world. There are other varieties with slight differences including the var. Artopurpureum (burgundy leaves) and var. Zwartkop/Schwarzkopf (much darker leaves).
