Senecio repens (serpens), native to South Africa, has also been classified in the past as Kleinia repens. There is much confusion involving Senecio repens, Senecio mandraliscae and a few others as all are very blue, with only slight difference in size and habits. Senecio repens forms clusters of stems with powder blue cylindrical, tapered leaves. Stems become prostrate, and tend to form large mats. Leaves are very pruinose, and each has a depressed groove on the upper surface. White pom-pom flower heads are comprised of many tiny flowers. Senecios are part of Asteraceae, a branch of the large family Compositae. This type of flower is typical of 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.
