Senecio radicans

Common Name: Tear Drops

Senecio radicans, commonly known as Tear Drops form long, string-like stems appear to be a necklace with tear-shaped leaves, hanging vertically up to 4′ long. Prefers part shade to full coastal sun. Easy to grow. Best as a potted plant in a hanging basket format, or cascading over the edges of a pot, planter or wall. Flowers are insignificant. People love its unique look and texture! Water deeply every few days or so, and then allow soil to dry for a few days. Not very good in the garden, as it simply kind-of creeps and tangles with other garden elements.
