Unfortunately most of Arizona is too hot in summer for Aeoniums, and the cooler summer areas are too cold in winter. They are Mediterranean climate plants from the Canary Islands in family Crassulaceae. They are widely used in coastal southern California landscapes. There are small ones succulent growers do well with in 3"/8cm pots. This one is hybrid Swartkop. It grows well in a small pot, but it is unlikely to get large enough to flower that way. It needs strong, direct sun all day to keep the dark color.

We have plenty of these Aeoniums here although not in my garden as I dislike them intensely! I love the leaves' colour and form, but the colour of the blooms really jars with me. The yellow is just such a brash/harsh shade that looks garish, doesn't look natural at all in my opinion.
One man's meat is another man's poison as the old proverb goes!

Tiger Eye Viola. Wonderfully fragrant and hard to take one's eyes off of
