With a clumping growth habit, the upright, slender leaves of Senecio scaposus ‘Silver Coral’ sport a lightly textured, matte appearance in shades of silvery green. The textured coating along the surface of the plant, which sometimes takes on a rather wooly appearance, can be damaged when handling the plant, and will not grow back – so take care when handling this intriguing variety.
Developed as an adaptation to the plant’s harsh native home of South Africa, ‘Silver Coral’s textured coating along each leaf shields the plant from damage from the direct sunlight it requires to reach its full size of 6-8 inches tall and wide. Beyond this need, its care is simple, and a porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot coupled with a thorough yet infrequent watering routine will have you well on your way to success with ‘Silver Coral.’
When contented, this variety will produce yellow blooms during the summer months, with a distinctly daisy-like appearance. Conversely, during the cold months of the year ‘Silver Coral’ must be protected from freezing temperatures, as it is hardy only to Zone 10.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
