Aeonium canariense (by flora-file)

Both photos are the same species, and the photos taken at the  same time on the same day. The top plant is growing in full sun, and the bottom in partial shade. In fact the bottom plant was grown from branches of the top plant, and after months of summer heat it has now grown larger than the original plant. The one in partial shade has been actively growing while the one in full sun has been clenched and dormant all summer. Just goes to show that not all succulents want full sun
