Aeonium arboreum 'Atropurpureum'

$ 7.00
Size: 2"

Introducing the striking Aeonium arboreum 'Atropurpureum', a captivating succulent native to the Canary Islands. This plant commands attention with its dark burgundy, almost black leaves, which form rosettes atop long, branching stems. The glossy foliage, which can appear almost metallic in the right lighting, contrasts beautifully against the lighter greens commonly found in succulent collections, making it a standout addition to any garden or home.

Aeonium arboreum 'Atropurpureum' can grow to an impressive height and width of approximately 3 feet, making it a stunning focal point. This variety thrives in both containers and in the ground, where its tree-like structure adds an exotic, tropical flair. In the spring, expect to see bright yellow flowers that contrast stunningly against the dark foliage, adding yet another layer of visual interest to this already dramatic plant.

While it enjoys full sun to partial shade, the 'Atropurpureum' is also quite drought-tolerant once established, making it an ideal candidate for xeriscaping or low-maintenance gardens. Its ability to store water in its thick leaves allows it to withstand longer periods without watering, though a regular watering schedule will encourage optimal growth and health.

Whether planted as a solitary specimen, in a succulent garden, or as part of a mixed container, Aeonium arboreum 'Atropurpureum' brings a touch of the dramatic to any setting. Its unique coloration and structure are sure to spark conversations and admiration from all who see it.


Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
