Senecio Rowleyanus is a wonderful succulent with amazing, trailing stems of spherical, bead-like leaves, each with a vertical, semi-translucent line running to its tip which assists photosynthesis. Flowers appear on tall, slender stems as small, white fuzzy daisies.
String of Pearls plants are relatively fast-growing so give them room to trail for green impact. Perfect for hanging baskets or cascading from shelves. A close relative of Senecio Herreianus - String of Beads.
