"Kiwi" aeonium (Aeonium "Kiwi") adds year-round color and texture to gardens with its colorful foliage, which has shades of chartreuse, cream and red. Kiwi aeonium propagates best by vegetative methods, but they will also grow from seed.
Aeoniums are natives of Madeira, the Canary Islands and North Africa, so therefore need winter protection when grown in Britain. Aeoniums make excellent summer bedding plants, and look particularly good in terracotta pots. Aeonium ‘Kiwi’ is a compact cultivar with succulent yellow-green leaves edged with red. It’s best grown in a container, allowing it to be moved indoors in the winter, or it can be grown as a houseplant. If grown indoors, grow in a bright spot out of direct sunlight. Placed outdoors in the summer months, it can be grown in full sun or partial shade. Pyramidal clusters of pale yellow flowers are produced in summer.
