Dwarf Blue Chalksticks (Senecio serpens) is a small, low growing succulent, branching from the base and rooting along the stems to provide an easy care, attractive drought tolerant groundcover up to 1 ft. tall, spreading 2 to 3 ft. wide. Powdery blue-green, short cylindrical leaves provide year round interest, taking on purple tints in extreme heat and sun exposure. Partial shade in desert; full sun elsewhere in well-drained soil. Smaller, tidier, and slower growing than Senecio mandraliscae. Small white flowers in late summer or fall are not considered an attractive feature of this plant.
