Senecio cristobalensis

Senecio cristobalensis

photos: chuck b.

Want some dramatic foliage? This Senecio has fuzzy, lobed, dinner-plate sized leaves that are dark green on top & rich purple underneath. The thick stems are fuzzy & purple, too. Grows to 8’ tall & 6-8’ wide so it will create quite a presence. In Winter it blooms with clusters of bright yellow flowers. Evergreen, but can be pruned to the ground if it needs rejuvenation. From Chiapas, Mexico.
