Aeonium 'Kiwi' (Kiwi Aeonium) - This succulent forms rosettes of fleshy, spoon-shaped leaves that are brilliantly colored. The leaves in the center are pale yellow and progressively the leaves get greener to the outside of the rosette. The edges of the leaves are red. Yellow flowers bloom in the summer. Plant in part sun. Drought tolerant. Offsets freely. Hardy to about 25-30 degrees F. This plant is considered to be a Aeonium haworthii hybrid though its origin is a mystery. In Australia the plant is called 'Tricolor' and in Europe it is called 'Kiwionium'.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Aeonium 'Kiwi'.
