Large Purple Aeonium: A striking succulent which forms clumps of 3-4 foot long, bare stems that hold large terminal rosettes of very dark purple (seemingly black) leaves. Yellow star-shaped flowers that contrast well against the dark foliage form in long conical clusters. Full sun to partial shade. Water deeply but infrequently. Semi-dormant in summer and early fall when foliage is at its darkest. Tolerates the seacoast, and is deer resistant.
