Senecio jacobsenii, native to Kenya and Tanzania, is part of the Compositae (Aster) family. Grows laterally, forming semi-prostrate stems with fleshy, glaucous leaves. This is a variegated form, with white, lime green and dark green areas on the leaves. Leaves blush beautiful violet in cold temperatures. Often mistaken for a Jade plant. Excellent as hanging basket. Orange compound flowers typical for Compositae. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Bright light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Less water during winter months. Protect from frost.
Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
