Learn about our plant of the month:

Aeonium 'Zwartkop'

aeonium zwartkopThe Aeonium 'Zwartkop' is a stunning evergreen succulent with large rosettes of glossy, dark burgundy leaves that can reach up to 6-8 inches in diameter. When exposed to full sun, the leaves turn almost black, which adds a lot of drama and interest to any garden or container. If grown in partial shade, the rosettes will have reddish-purple leaves with a green center. This plant is beautiful even without flowers, but in spring, it produces bright golden racemes of small, star-shaped flowers that really make it stand out. Aeoniums can thrive in sandy, well-drained soils with dry to medium moisture and full sun. They can also tolerate light shade and poor soil conditions. However, these plants require more frequent watering when compared to other succulents—despite being drought-tolerant—due to their limited, shallow root system.
