Senecio haworthii

Senecio haworthii

Consumer Information

Alternative Names:

syn. Kleinia; Comm. Woolly Senecio)

Narrative Description:

We saw this plant first, in its original home of South Africa. A perennial succulent dwarf with unbelievably attractive upright lobes of pure white due to the fine white hairs covering all surfaces of the leaves. This makes this the ultimate touchy-feely plant! Infrequent flowering stems produce small yellow buttons in its native conditions, but not often seen in cooler climes.

Ideal Conditions:

Plant in full sun in an open airy location with well-drained soil and water sparingly, allowing soil to dry between watering. Keep the foliage reasonably dry during winter months if possible.

Possible Situation:

Makes a very attractive container plant and looks particularly good in a terracotta pot as this shows the foliage off well and allows the soil to dry.
