Hi Debspage,

This plant is actually a succulent and the common name is Black Rose - Latin name is Aeonium 'Zwartkop'. It really does look like a flower! If you google Aeonium you will get lots of info about the plant. It's not hardy in my climate here in Vancouver but if you live in a frost free place you can grow them year round. I usually use them as annuals in containers and beds. I hope this helps!
