Coral Senecio Overview

Coral senecio is ideal for planting in rockeries or other dry, sunny spots. The scarlet flower heads add a splash of colour in mid-winter. The succulent leaves, which are an attractive grey/green with purpling on the underside, give the plant year-round appeal and add a pleasing contrast when planted among short grasses or spring flowering bulbs.
