IMPORTANT INFORMATION: |
We ship your plants mostly Bare root which means that some of the soil and the pot have been removed from the plant. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. This method allows lower freight rates and cleaner shipping.
We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on what time of year you purchase it and whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at different paces and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
Aeonium arboreum v. atropurpureum 'Zwartkop' is a cultivar that has been propagated widely for its magnificent dark burgundy leaves. This unusual cristate form produces stems that begin to grow laterally, producing fan shapes topped with dense burgundy leaves. Cristate forms generally occur when injury occurs to the plant at a young age (this damage can be due to insects eating the growing tip, or from many other causes, including a genetic predisposition). In reaction to the "injury", the cells at the tip of the branch where growth occurs begin to multiply at a much faster rate and the normal growing tip "goes crazy", creating fantastic whorls and fans. Can be used for dramatic foliage accent on the patio or in landscapes in temperate areas. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Summer dormant; preferable to provide cool shade during dormancy. Protect from frost. They are native to the Canary Islands.
