For Blackswamp Girl

The Aeonium Shwarzkopf with its dark looking leaves.It is native to the canary islands, Madeira, and North Africa.I think it looks like a house leek on a stem
These have beautiful yellow flowers in the summer, and are supposed to be easy to propogate.This has an enormous leaf head that tipped the pot over it was so heavy.
They need watering in the summer, but not in the winter.They are succulent so they store it in the waxy leaves.
It has a mad range of colour from black to purple to green.I will post more pics when i take them..
