Senecio Scaposus goes by the common name “Woolly Senecio.” A native of South Africa, this succulent is noted for finger-shaped long erect leaves bearing a woolly cover. Belonging to the Asteraceae family, the height of this lovely plant is about 30 cm with a short stem or, at times, no stem at all. Woolly Senecio is a summer-dormant plant requiring full sun exposure for abundant growth.

Growth Rate

Woolly Senecio has a slow growth rate but grows easily.

Flowering

During the blooming season, which is springtime, orange-colored starry-shaped flowers adorn the top of the stalks. About three to five in number, the daisy-like flowers are a show stopper.

Watering and Feeding

This hardy succulent loves water, but care should be taken not to overwater. In winters especially, minimal watering is required. Applying fertilizers once or twice a year is advised for the nourishment of the plant.

Soil

Senecio scaposus requires gritty and sandy soil that drains off quickly. The soil should be allowed to dry and drench in between watering. Make sure that the ideal soil should contain coarse sand and cactus potting soil.

Hardiness

Senecio scaposus is hardy in zones 9b to 11b, with a frost tolerance of -5° C (23° F). It, however, cannot tolerate heavy frost.

Light

This succulent plant loves warm temperatures and cannot bear the intense cold. It requires full sun for growth.

Propagation

This variety of Senecio can be propagated directly from seeds or cuttings.

Woolly Senecio is a good option for groundcover in your succulent garden. When it flowers, the entire look-and-feel can change. Add it to your outdoors, or send it out as a gift to your loved ones!
