SKU: 98725437


Family Crassulaceae
Originating from Canaries and North Africa

An upright, sub-shrub with stems terminating in rosettes of tightly grouped, succulent leaves, brown/green in winter, jet-black in summer up to 20cm in diameter. A striking patio plant or addition to a succulent bed for the summer months.
Aeoniums are tender plants and will not survive outdoors in the UK. They require minimal heat during the winter months, a few degrees above frost free but they must be kept very dry and in good light. At the nursery, we plant Aeonium ‘Zwartkop’ in the free-draining, gritty soil of our raised succulent bed in May, where it is often mistaken for an exotic flower, and dig up and store in late October. It may produce a real flower when in its forth or fifth year, the rosette rising from the centre into a large dome, opening into panicles of yellow flowers.
Grow in gritty, free-draining soil or compost. Allow to dry out completely between watering. Requires full sun as leaves will loose their lustrous black colour in anything less.
