Senecio jacobsenii ‘Trailing or weeping jade’
Senecios are a wide-ranging group of Plants in the daisy family. They range from upright to trailing to shrubs, and have beautiful blooms in fall and spring! Keep your senecio as a container plant, put it on a tall shelf or in a basket, or if you live in a warmer climate, plant it as outdoor ground cover. There is so much variety and beauty in this family, you will likely find a plant that catches your eye. This senecio will naturally trail along the ground, but looks beautiful cascading downwards from a hanging basket as well. Although this plant resembles a jade, they actually belong to different families. Similar to the jades, exposure to bright light or cold temperatures might cause this plant to blush a purple or reddish color around the edges.
