Description: 'Short Black' is undoubtedly one of our favorites! A large growing cultivar which develops a brilliant colour transition from green, purple to a deep black. Although not turning as dark black in colour as 'Zwartkop', 'Short Black' maintains a much better overall shape. Throughout winter plants can often be fairly green only developing its dark black colours over the summer months and when grown in good sun light.
Plant Care: Super easy to grow and care for. Well suited for growing in pots or in the ground.
Origins: This is most likely the same plant as Aeonium 'Zwartkin' (Aeonium tabuliforme x A. 'Zwartkop') a hybrid by Jack Catlin USA.
Comments: Within Australia this cultivar is known under the name 'Short Black'. Internationally it is commonly known as Aeonium 'Zwartkin'. 'Zwartkin' is most likely the correct name but to avoid further confusion we will retain the name 'Short Black' for the short term.
