Sizing guide

Aeonium arboreum 'Atropurpureum Schwarzkopf', commonly known as Black Rose, is a striking succulent with dark, almost black rosettes that can grow up to 20 cm wide. This plant typically reaches a height of 90-120 cm, making it a dramatic focal point in gardens or containers. Its unique, dark foliage contrasts beautifully with its bright yellow flowers that bloom in spring.

To grow 'Schwarzkopf' in Australia, plant it in a sunny location with well-draining soil. It thrives in rocky or sandy soils and can tolerate dry conditions. Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. Protect it from frost and provide good air circulation to prevent fungal diseases. 

'Schwarzkopf' is low-maintenance and can be propagated easily from stem cuttings. With its bold appearance and minimal care requirements, it is an excellent addition to succulent collections and drought-tolerant gardens.
