Aeonium are evergreen succulents often of shrubby habit, with fleshy leaves in terminal rosettes on the shoots, and racemes or panicles of small, star-shaped flowers with numerous narrow petals.
‘Zwartkop’ is a succulent evergreen perennial of open habit, with rosettes of deep blackish-purple leaves, and large panicles of small, starry, bright yellow flowers in early spring.
Experimenting with colouring I found that the leaves took on a metallic appearance with some tones, by adding a little contrast tweak, and lowering the gamma levels the effect was complete.

    I love these succulents and have plenty of them in front of my house. It would be lovely if mine would glow sometimes like yours. Wonderful effect, the beautiful pattern and structure of this plant are even more evident in your photo.

  • Thank you Bettina, If only I could get the to grow with this colour and effect, I would be a rich man.
