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. Also known as Curio repens or Kleinia repens, Senecio serpens is 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.
