Aeonium makes a great impact plant with its lush purple black foliage and compact low habit. Grow as a specimen or plant several together as a drift. Makes a great specimen in a pot for positioning on the patio among summer flowering plants.

Cultivation tips: This low growing succulent sub-shrub originates from the Canary Islands so is a touch tender for the UK. Plant in any reasonably fertile gritty well drained soil in a warm sheltered planting location if you want this plant to get even a sniff at surviving a British winter. Position in full sun for best foliage colour and consider planting in pot so you can over winter under glass.
