The Senecio genus is one of the largest flowering plant families. This genus includes about 1200 different varieties. The Eden Collection includes several of these, including the Senecio scaposus and the Senecio stapeliaeformis. They are special varieties because of the shape of their leaves and colours. In the South of Africa you can find these two plants in their natural setting. The Senecio family is a succulent family and thus these plants are very hardy and need little care.
