The Aeonium kiwi rarely grows beyond the height of 60cm to 90cm. With full sun exposure, the tip of the leaves turns red, while in partial shade, the spoon-like leaves in variegated rosette shape are a mix of vibrant yellow and green.
The kiwi succulent grows at a slow rate in the outdoors and indoors. It grows in a small pot or a big planter to fill the entire space when placed indoors. In the outdoors, the plant grows in shrubs.
During the blooming season that is winter and spring, the tri-color Aeonium Kiwi bears yellow-colored flowers.
