"Black Rose" cuttings

Aeonium arboreum var. atropurpureum 'Schwarzkof'
Aeonium is a genus of about 35 species, 
mainly native to the Canary Islands.
I have broken up a clump of this dramatic
maroon succulent for re-planting. 
Do you have a sunny position?
I started with just one plant many
years ago.  A sunny position and 
rainfall in Melbourne leads to an 
annual chop. Very hardy and pest 
resistant. New growth is green which 
then gradually darkens with exposure
more sunlight.
