Aeonium 'Kiwi'

Native to the Canary Islands, this succulent produces green and yellow coloured leaves with pink margins in small rosettes that grow to about 6cm in diameter. They produce maximum contrast colours in full sun, but will do well in partial shade also, with deep green foliage. Kiwis are perfect for water-wise gardens, though they do not tolerate frost well. They are hardy, compact, and have beautiful foilage, making them a fantastic addition to gardens or collections.
