Aeonium haworthii (Haworth's aeonium, pinwheel) is a species of succulent plant in the genus Aeonium of the family Crassulaceae. It is native to the Canary Islands, but it has been introduced to other areas of similar climate, such as Southern California. It is a sand-dwelling beach plant, a subshrub with rough, woody stems and rosettes of thick, red-edged green leaves which are triangular or diamond- or spade-shaped. It grows to 60 cm, with panicles of cream-colored pointed flowers produced in spring.[1]

A. haworthii is grown as a houseplant in temperate regions. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[2]
