  • 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.

  • Full Sun is okay.

    Well drained soil is recommended.

    Actively grows in Spring and Fall.

    Black Roses planted in the ground require less watering than container plants, so feel the soil a few inches down near the roots to check for moisture. If it feels completely dry, water deeply.

    With water-soluble 10-10-10 fertilizer diluted to half-strength once a month from May through September.

    Generally non-toxic to humans and animals.

    Propagation by cuttings.

    Not cold hardy.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

A rough start but looking up!

I have been above and beyond five star satisfied with the fist 6 succulents that I ordered, so it pains me to give a lower rating here. But in the interest of full disclosure, this order got trapped in holiday shipping delays and cold weather (neither of which were the fault of the company) so I expected the plants would arrive in less than perfect condition. Actually, I am surprised that the others I've ordered have come through in such GOOD condition thus far! This delicate little guy arrived wilted and required removal of a lot of badly damaged leaves that could not be saved. That was a week ago. He has since recovered somewhat, no longer burdened by a lot of dead weight, and is standing tall and very slowly putting out new leaves, but he is still far from the big full plant pictured above. My point is, do not despair if your pants arrive looking less than perfect! They are living things that just spent a week in a cold dark box and just need a little sun and water and proper care and they will revive. I am looking forward to watching this one grow into his full glory! But I'm keeping his "baby picture" to remind myself of his humble beginnings!
