Senecio

 

Senecio includes over 1000 species from all over the world. A large number of these species are common perennial or annual weeds, but some are succulent and caudiciforms from tropical and subtropical areas. A number of succulent relatives have now been moved to the genus Kleinia.

The flowers of Senecio are arranged in clusters at the top of the plants, they vary in color from white and yellow, to red and purple.

Most succulent species tolerate no frost.
