Also known as Aeoinum ‘Zwartkop’ and the ‘Black Rose’ plant
One of the darkest leaved Aeoniums, ‘Schwarzkopf’ produces deep purple almost black foliage. The leaves turn darker with plenty of sun and can become more green if the plant is shaded.
Aeoniums make great container plants. They’re not particularly frost hardy, so are best treated as a houseplant in most areas of the UK but can be moved outdoors for the summer. In very mild areas, the plants can be grown as a garden plant. Aeoniums prefer to be planted in quite free draining, moderately fertile compost and benefit from an occasional feed in the warmer months. Native to Africa, Aeoniums can reach upto 2m in height, but are generally more compact when container grown. The height can be further restricted by removing the terminal rosettes, this encourages the plant to produce more rosettes along the stems resulting in a squatter, more dense plant.
