There are several varieties of Aeoniums some of which remain green throughout the year and some which are almost black. It seems to get leggy in its growth habit, but it branches freely after pruning. It is easily rooted in well drained soil. As a succulent it should withstand drought well, but it seems to drop it leaves if it is too dry. On the bay roof it survives the winter well but pruning is needed as it gets very leggy. Aeoniums are natives of Maderia, the Canary Islands and North Africa and a heavy frost may kill it.
