    Succulent?

    Hi All,

    I received this specimen from a friend in the Western Cape. Stuck it into the ground and it started growing. Does any have information regarding this plant? First time I have seen this exact plant.
    It's an awesome looking plant, wish I had photos of the Mother plant though.

    Regards

    Definitely a succ. May be an Aeonium.

    Definitely Aeonium. It looks like it could be the cultivar 'Zwartkop,' but may be light-starved. If you get that guy into intense sunshine and it turns completely black, you'll know for sure.

    Hi Plantman, thanks for the info.

    This is my first Aeonium so not sure of the conditions that I should provide. Did find the following from finegardening's website:
    Black rose
    Aeonium arboreum 'Zwartkop'
    Height: 1 ft. to 3 ft.
    Spread: 1 ft. to 3 ft.
    Growth Habit: Clumps
    Light: Full Sun Only
    Moisture: Dry to Medium
    Maintenance: Low
    Characteristics: Showy Flowers,Showy Foliage
    Bloom Time: Winter
    Flower Color: Yellow
    Foliage Color: Black,Colorful/Burgundy Foliage
    Uses: Beds and Borders
    Style: Rock Garden
    Seasonal Interest: Spring Interest
    Tolerance: Drought Tolerant
    Type: Cacti and Succulents

    Sound like the perfect plant for my garden, Dry in Winter and some rain in Summer. Cacti and Succulents thrive here. Lol

    Speaking of Aeonium, do they ever branch out? I got a cutting nearly seven years ago from a plant that was branchy, but it's been one just rosette since.
