Yours is taller but I think we're growing the same cultivar of Aeonium arboreum 'Cyclops'. Big heads of leaves with ginorumous flowers. No flowers on mine yet this year but here is a link to one its flowers last year with my 50 pound Aussie Fletcher for comparison.

Whoa!!! That's one crazy tall aeonium! We have some purple ones that are about four feet tall (got them at garage sale for free).

Here in Seattle, I might get the adjacent foxglove to get that tall, in July! but no way to get a Aeonium to look like that, unless I have a greenhouse ;)

Mark, I think you are correct in identifying the variety "Cyclops".
Thanks for dropping in Y'all.
