Succulents in the genus Senecio are flowering plants. Flowers are daisy-like and yellow, or red-orange puffs. Blooms dry into dandelion-like tufts. Leaves range from sky blue through shades of green. Some senecios are whitish, and at least one (Senecio jacobsenii) blushes purple-pink. Senecio is one of the largest genera of flowering plants.
Senecio plants are native to mild regions of South Africa. Additionally, they are frost-tender. However, a few will tolerate temperatures into the 20s F (-6.7°C). Unless otherwise noted, Senecios need the same care as most other soft-leaved succulents.
