Origin and habitat: Africa from Morocco
Common names: Swizzle Sticks, Cigar Plant
Description: Senecio anteuphorbium is a summer dormant deciduous shrub that can grow to 3 to 9" tall, sometimes forming ragged thickets.
Bloomtime: Fall/Winter.

Senecio anteuphorbium is a fast grower, good succulent ground cover in frost free zones and also a great container plant for full sun to partial shade. It is probably a winter grower and need water from October, when the new leaves can be seen forming on the growing tip In April the leaves begin to go yellow and drop off, so now it rests quite dry in to summer. But others suggest to water it moderately all year round as it tends to be an opportunistic plant that tend to grow in each time of the year whenever it has enough water in fair weather and rest when temperatures are too hot or too cool and may have several or sometimes no growth cycles in a year.
