A Bit More

An attention-getting succulent perennial native to the Canary Islands off the northwest coast Africa that features striking purple to black leaves forming large rosettes measuring 6-8 inches wide on 2-3 foot tall branches. It takes the yellow individual flower stalks years to emerge and heralds the demise of that particular rosette. Aeoniums require occasional deep watering, well-drained soil and full sun near the coast with partial shade inland. Aeoniums will lend character and interest to the garden and works well in containers.
