String of Dolphins Overview
Dendrophorbium peregrinum is an evergreen perennial from the Asteraceae family. Grown for the trailing strings of succulent green leaves that resemble dolphins, it is commonly known as String of Dolphins. After creating a splash in Japan in 2017, this plant has become a desirable choice around the world as it makes a great houseplant, requiring little water and bright indirect sun. The taxonomy of this species has been debated, it was previously considered part of the Senecio genus and known as Senecio peregrinus, but has been reclassified and is now known as Dendrophorbium peregrinum. Plant in hanging basket to really show off the leaves that look like jumping dolphins, which cascade down in a trailing fashion. This succulent likes more water than most and prefers to be in a position of partial shade rather than full direct sunlight.
