Vertical Leaf Senecio

Size
  •  Senecio crassissimus, also known as Vertical Leaf Senecio, is a perennial subshrub that can grow up to 24 inches (60 cm) in height and 18 inches (45 cm) in width.

     Its stems are thick, erect, and purplish green. Senecio crassissimus has leaves that are long, flat, waxy and grey-green in color with vibrant purple edges.

     From mid-summer to fall, the plant produces bright yellow daisy-like flowers from stalks that are up to 2 feet (60 cm) tall.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  •  Full sun to Light shade.

     Porous and well-drained potting soil. Replenish nutrients in the soil every now and then.

     Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Reduce watering to a minimum in the winter.

     Feed annually but lightly because too much fertilizer can cause etiolation.

     You can propagate K. anteuphorbium from seed or stem cuttings. Warm temperature at 55˚F / 13˚C and constant moisture are ideal for their seeds to germinate. Propagation from cuttings is easier and quicker. You should cut during the growing season from early spring to fall and let them root in sandy soil.
  • USDA Hardiness Zone 9a to 11b: from 20 °F (−6.7 °C) to 50 °F (10 °C)
  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most of the plants will be shipped bare-root to ensure their safety.

We do not ship outside of the continental United States.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Vertical Leaf Senico

My experience has been wonderful with Succulent Box. Once again this plant was larger than expected. I was looking at it yesterday and the stems are showing the purple. It has actually grown since I got it. I just love getting my plants with Succulent Box.
