Black rose aeonium is a show-stopper. Its nearly black foliage and clusters of yellow flowers bring contrast and drama into any garden planting. This plant is not subtle; instead, it can easily become the center of attention in containers, raised planters and in grouped plantings. This is a winter growing plant that puts on a flush of new leaves just ahead of its flowering cycle.
Black rose aeonium grows well in sunny to partially shaded exposures; avoid planting in hot summer sun locations to avoid burning and drying of its leaves. Winter rains are usually sufficient to provide good moisture for robust growth and flowering; little water is needed throughout the rest of the year.
