Senecio oxyriifolius has the common name False Nasturtium. A member of the Asteraceae family, this succulent has a distinct tuberous creeping rootstock and multiple vertically erect fleshy stems.

The dense foliage blooms into tiny yellow flowers from Spring to Summer, the blooming season. This winter-dormant plant is highly drought-tolerant and a native of South Africa. Some of the other African countries where the False Nasturtium grows are Zimbabwe, Zambia, Congo, Angola, Swaziland, Malawi, Tanzania, and Mozambique.
