It reacts to sunlight, and the stronger the sunlight.

Flowers: Yellow flowers.

Blooming season: Spring to summer.

Cultivation and propagation: It requires gritty well drained potting mix. Water deeply but infrequently. Plants are allowed to thoroughly dry in-between waterings. During the winter months restrict water to about once a month, or just enough to keep the foliage from shriveling. Position in full to part sun in a sheltered spot, but the bright light enhances the rich hues of the darker Aeoniums, and the subtle blushes of the other colors, but prefers light shade to shade in summer. The plants tend to go dormant in the summer and look a little tired sometimes, but they perk up again in the fall. Summer is the natural dormant season for this species in its native land. Needs protection from severe winter frosts (Hardy to -2°C or a little less for short periods), over winter under glass in all but the mildest of gardens.

my Black Rose

Not up to the standards I've come to expect from Planet Desert. Seems to have had a rough time during shipping. was wrapped with petals pointing downward like an umbrella -- very droopy -- petals still falling off. Large rosette on a 2-3" bare stem. If it lives, will probably behead and re-plant.
