This succulent plant has curious emerald green leaves with translucent 'windows', allowing sun to shine through. It also bears fragant daisy-like flowers. Its hanging chains of leaves will look spectacular in hanging baskets. Senecio radicans is native to the Cape Province in South Africa, where it forms matted colonies under the shade of shrubs or rocks. In some country it is commonly called "String of Bananas”. It takes cool weather and grows well in warmer mediterranean areas but it should be protected from frost.
Senecio is one of the largest genera of flowering plants, with about 1250 species, belonging to the daisy family (Asteraceae). It evolved into many different forms, including leaf, stem and tuber succulents, annuals, perennials, aquatics, climbers, shrubs and small trees. Some of the succulent species, adapted to desert conditions are sought after by collectors.
