Description

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.

Plant care

Prefers to be planted in well-draining soil but can handle most other soil types, just take care to not overwater. Water regularly during the first year to aid the plant in establishing a strong root system, frequency can be reduced once established.
