Senecio citriformis features tear shaped leaves that create a waterfall effect as they cascade down the plant.  Grown for their unique foliage, this member of the Aster family produces beautiful yellow flowers.  Native to South Africa, where it grows in rocky outcrops.  Grows 4" tall, and 2' wide.  The specific epithet for this species is 'citriformis', because the leaves are shaped like lemons.  Forms a small groundcover when grown outside.  Senecio requires porous soil with excellent drainage and air flow.  Grows best in part shade, especially during summer.  Water when soil is dry.  Excellent for rock gardens and containers.  A good houseplant when placed in bright light.  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.
