Aeonium arboreum 'Schwarzkopf'
There are two plants in the gardens that cause the most enquiries, one of which is Aeonium arboreum 'Schwarzkopf'. Mentioned in the blog entry of the 15th July 2011 'What Is That?', it is still one of the top two plants that create interest. Found in the corner border display this year, the Aeonium is a dark succulent forming rosettes of almost black, glossy leaves. Tender, the six plants will be lifted in October and repotted for their winter storage in the greenhouse.
