Aeonium ‘Jack Catlin’

Aeonium 'Jack Catlin',  Black Rose, Purple Rose Tree, Purple Rose Black Aeonium, Black succulent

Aeonium ‘Jack Catlin’ is an evergreen succulent perennial forming low clumps of showy rosettes, 6-8 in. wide (15-20 cm), of glossy, fleshy, brilliant burgundy-red leaves. They contrast beautifully with the bright apple green heart. This Aeonium offsets readily, spreading over time to form a lovely ground cover. Attractive when not blooming, it is particularly striking when it produces bright golden racemes of small, star-shaped flowers in late spring or summer.

  • Grows up to 18 in. tall (45 cm) and 24 in. wide (60 cm).
  • Easily grown in sandy, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates light shade and poor soils. While drought tolerant, Aeoniums require more regular watering than other succulents since they have a relatively small, shallow root system.
  • Aeoniums may go dormant in summer and do not require any water, except in excessively dry conditions. When in growth water moderately and feed every two or three weeks with a balanced liquid feed. During the winter months, restrict water to just enough to keep the foliage from shriveling.
  • Aeoniums are monocarpic: the rosette flowers once and dies thereafter. However, it may take several years before this happens and not all rosettes bloom at the same time.
  • Excellent for rock gardens, succulent gardens or Mediterranean gardens. Perfect for containers where spectacular floral arrangements can be created.
  • Deer resistant and salt tolerant.
  • Virtually pest and disease free
  • Propagate by cuttings of rosettes kept at 64ºF (18ºC) and barely moist until rooted.
