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'.
