The Aeonium Kiwi is a brightly colored branching shrub succulent. The leaves have shades of cream, red and chartreuse as well as a soft yellow center. More color appears at the edge of each leaf which is trimmed in red. The plants develop as rosettes at the end of stalks that reach 6 – 12″ tall and 2 -3″ wide. If you place your plant in sufficient sunlight it will produce bell shaped flowers at the end of stalks that will extend another 8” from the plant.
“Kiwi” Aeonium – 2 inch Potted Plant, Aeonium Haworthii
In the Aeonium succulent family, the ‘Kiwi’ is the easiest to grow and is the hardiest. This makes a delightful plant to give as a gift to someone unfamiliar with growing plants.
The attractive Aeonium Kiwi is also known as:
- Aeonium Decorum Kiwi
- Haworth’s Aeonium
As with all succulents, this attractive plant is drought tolerant. However, if left outside in high heat conditions they will die. The optimum temperature conditions is 65-75F.
The Kiwi Aeonium remains dormant in the hotter summer months and prefers cool shade during that time. When dormant the leaves will start to curl. This just means it’s dormant period has begun, not that it is stressed or dying. If provided some water and shade they will live through their dormant stage and restart their active growth through the fall, winter and spring months.
