Flower identification:

In morning time. Please kindly Id this flower.

I’m pretty sure that this is Aeonium arboreum ‘Atropurpureum’, a popular container plant derived from a Canary Island species.

these are not flowers. are the leaves in rossett arrangement.

yes, it does look like Aeonium, and the foto is not of flowers but of leaves.
my friend has this plant, will findout, if he knows the name. In fact he purchases plants, because they look beautiful he is not interested in knowing names. Still shall try.

Agree with … this is indeed A. arboreum var Atropurpureum

Aeonium arboreum ‘Atropurpureum’ indeed

This is high growing, can this be A. arboreum

Aeonium arboreum at the end of its life … that’s why the “leaves” are looking scraggly

Cultivated, ornamental plant seen in Los Angeles on 3rd Oct,14.
Seems to be Echeveria Species.

I think yes, E. arborea

Thanks for the id. I can’t find any match for the suggested id.
Echeveria ‘Black Prince’, Black Hen & Chicks seems more closer.
Can you kindly have a relook?

They are cultivars of E. arborea only.

not hens and chick
not really those cultivars you named
seems to be what … IDed it as …e. arborea
long stalks are the characteristic way to grow over time.
and this plant is dying of thirst and absence of good direct yet filtered light

Thanks, …, I am not finding any match for Echeveria arborea on google search or The Plant List.
What can be the problem ?

you are right
a typo from … and I carried it… I looked at the picture itself now
Its aeonium arborea.
They tend to grow that way … this is my pint
pell mell speed of a very difficult family that hybridizes like rabbits…
not this case but the pace of the cases submission.. I have sent you both a sep email

A Cultivar of Echeveria arborea.
Ornamental Plant For ID : California : 30NOV14 : AK-70

Not Echeveria arborea, there is no such published name
It is Aeonium arboreum ‘Zwartkop’, the black rose.

I thought we discussed this for a diagnosis for a while and fnished just today
why is in again?
Its Aeonium artboreum
a very common thing in california gardens but they grow taller and taller when deprived of water and light
and that was my question in the thread that just closed a few hours ago…
I think this is the same picture
ps – I saved this as draft and looked … was i wrong to think i had just seen this picture?//
yes it is the same: good, so now you are pretty sure

This ornamental was recorded from HPU Campus in Shimla, specific id is requested…though this is difficult for the genus..

May be Aeonium ciliatum

Aeonium species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)

Could be a variety / cultivar of Sedum spathulifolium

The plant uploaded seems to be Aeonium tabulaeformae

I would think this is Aeonium arboreum although there are several quite similar looking species in the Canary Islands and they can hybridise. A. arboreum is the one widely grown as an ornamental and the images match it well. There is a commonly grown bronze/purple form of this species in cultivation too.
