About Senecio mandraliscae

Slender-Leaf Senecio is a slender, hairless, much-branched annual herb, usually about 15-45 cm tall. The leaves are stalkless and pinnately cut.This is such a useful succulent. The linear foliage gives the garden a shot of blue all year long. The texture & color combine well with many plants.

Try it with Asclepias currassavica Silky Gold for a blue & yellow garden or combine with lime green Crassula lycopodiodes for a cool color scheme. Grows to about 1 inch high & about 3 inch wide. Clip to keep compact. The flowers are inconspicuous, but S. madraliscae makes an excellent foliage plant. It can be grown as a trailing plant in a container.

Planting and care

  • Water the plant only during dry summer weather. Blue finger is a drought-tolerant succulent that can survive long, dry periods. Watch for signs that the plant needs water, especially leaves that begin to look shrunken or wilted. Water the plant s site deeply, and then allow the soil to dry completely before watering again.
  • Stop watering the plant in late summer or early autumn. Withhold water completely during the winter months. Damp, cool soil places the plant at risk for stem rot.
  • Established plants are extremely drought tolerant.
  • They do need some water, during the summer, but do not leave the soil wet for prolonged periods.
  • Allow the soil to dry out between waterings in the winter, when they are somewhat dormant.
  • Since they are growing in sandy soil, nutrients will need to be replenished.
  • Fertilize annually, but lightly.
  • Too much fertilizer will cause a lot of leggy growth.
