Senecio/Sinocrassula

Senecio/Sinocrassula succulents in the genus Senecio have flowers that are daisy-like, white, yellow, or red-orange ‘puffs’. Flowers dry into dandelion-like tufts. Leaves range from different shades of blue through to many different shades of green. Some senecios are whitish and there is one that blushes purple/pink, with enough sunlight. Like many other succulents, senecios are native to the milder regions in South Africa. Some will tolerate cold, but not frost. Many of our favourite trailing plants for hanging baskets, come from this genus, such as the much loved Senecio Rowleyanus, more commonly known as ‘String of pearls’. There are also shrub-like plants, which spread well and look amazing as they swath their way through the garden. SINOCRASSULA: means ‘Chinese crassula’. They are native to Southern China and North Burma. They, incredibly grow at an altitude of between 2500-2700m. They also present like rosettes but their leaves are quite often thin and triangular. They can grow up to 20cm in height, developing dense clumps.
