A colorful succulent in my March garden


Aeonium kiwi is a fabulous little succulent in our garden this month.  The sunshine has brought out the bright red margins and yellow centers of this multi stemmed mass of rosettes.

Aeonium kiwi

This group is spilling out of an old claw foot bathtub-now-planter on our back yard patio.  It’s also been poked around into pots here and there.  This massing plant is a great year-round ground cover that’s mostly green in the shade or when the days are overcast, then delights with pops of color with more sun.

 

Very drought tolerant, as are most succulents, this little beauty gets water once weekly at most.

 

This is one of those wonderful plants that proves that you don’t need flowers for color in your garden!
