Aeoniums are fleshy, architectural plants native to Madeira, the Canary Islands and North Africa. They make excellent summer bedding plants, and look particularly good in terracotta pots.
Aeonium 'Zwartkop' is a branching shrub with magnificent, almost black-purple, succulent, polished leaf rosettes with a lime-green centre, at the ends of its branches. It's perfect for growing in containers on a sunny patio, or as summer bedding in a hot, dry border.
For best results grow Aeonium 'Zwartkop' in well-drained soil or containers in a sunny, sheltered position. Water plants sparingly. Provide protection from frost or bring plants indoors in autumn.
