Introducing the variegated wax ivy plant, known as Senecio macroglossus variegatus, which is a beautiful and popular trailing plant that belongs to the Senecio genus. Native to South Africa, it is widely cultivated for its attractive foliage and cascading growth habit. 

The term "variegated" refers to the pattern of creamy yellow colors on the leaves, while "wax" describes the waxy texture of the leaves. This name accurately captures the plant's distinctive appearance and texture. This Senecio wax ivy is also referred to as variegated senecio and is related to the string of pearls plant. 


This trailing vine with purple stems and triangular leaves grows fast, and vigorous.

In bright sunlight, the white stems and leaf edges turn a lovely pink and purple, making a lovely contrast with the green.

When grown as a trailing plant, the variegated wax plant can reach a mature length of around 3 feet long.

Its cascading growth habit makes it a perfect choice for hanging baskets, containers, or as a ground cover in suitable climates.

The flowers of variegated wax ivy bloom during the summer months, with small, daisy-like yellow flowers. While the flowers are not the main attraction of this plant, they add a touch of color and can attract pollinators like bees and butterflies to your garden. 

When it comes to variegated wax ivy care, provide it with bright, indirect sunlight indoors and at least 4-6 hours of full sun to partial shade outside per day. It prefers well-draining soil and requires regular watering, allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. This plant requires little maintenance and can tolerate some neglect. 

Pro Tip

When cultivated indoors, the stems of this wax ivy variegated can reach several feet in length. It may easily be clipped to any desired shape, whether it's cascading from a hanging pot or growing up a totem.

Fertilize it once a year in the active growing season, which is typically spring. It can thrive indoors in warm temperatures between 65-75°F and is well-suited to outdoor USDA zones 11-12. It is important to protect this plant from temperatures below 50°F to prevent damage. As it's not frost-hardy, so protect it on a deck or balcony to prevent frost damage. 

Propagation of the variegated wax ivy can be done through stem cuttings. Simply take a healthy stem cutting, remove the lower leaves, and place it in a well-draining potting mix. Keep the soil slightly moist until roots develop, which usually takes a few weeks. 

With the help of variegated wax ivy trailing plants, you'll start to spend less time maintaining your garden and more time taking in its beauty!
