For lovers of succulents, Aeonium kiwi over-delivers. Its evergreen beauty with colorful leaves is only topped in the blooming season when it produces golden star-like flowers.
Aeonium kiwi is a medium-sized evergreen succulent, native to the Canary Islands and northern Africa, and later introduced to other areas with similar climates, like southern California.
Brightly colored, its meaty yellow-ish leaves grow in rosettes that resemble spoons or spades, boarded with a bright red rim. When it finally reaches its blooming period (always in the summer), it produces star-shaped, bright yellow to golden flowers.
Incredibly low-maintenance, this plant hibernates during the summer, only growing in spring and autumn, and it doesn’t require any special care. Also, it’s virtually pest and disease free.
