Aeonium Black Rose ‘Zwartkop’ is a striking succulent with clumps up to 3 feet (90 cm) tall gray-brown stems that often branch near their base. The long, bare stems hold large terminal rosettes (up to 8 inches/20 cm in diameter) of very dark purple, almost black leaves. Large conical clusters of bright yellow star-shaped blooms. Aeonium leaves bruises very easily, so please expect that there may be some bruises on the leaves upon arrival. The bruises are absolutely normal and do no harm to the plant. The plant will quickly produce new leaves to replace the bruised ones. All of the plants will be shipped bare root. Aeonium arboreum Zwartkop, commonly known as Black Rose, Black Beauty, Black Tree Aeonium, Black Aeonium.See about my blog: How to care for Aeonium Black Rose
