Senecio citriformis 'String of Teardrops'

$ 6.00
Size: 2"

Bright green stems bear pointed, oval leaves in a hazy bluish gray that truly do resemble Senecio citriformis ‘String of Teardrops’ namesake! Unlike many of the popular Senecio varieties that trail readily, the especially unique growth form of this specimen includes upright stems up to 4 inches in height, creating a shrubbier aesthetic that is further accentuated for part of each year by tall bloom stalks bearing white, pom-pom shaped flowers.

Hardy only to Zone 10, ‘String of Teardrops’ prefers to be housed in container arrangements that can be protected from frost during the chilly winter months. Bright yet indirect sunlight will encourage healthy growth while preventing sunburn, and a thorough yet infrequent watering routine will stave off issues such as rot or pests. Porous soil within a well-draining pot, and ample airflow around the leaves and soil surface, will further shield against these issues.

Despite its adorable appearance, ‘String of Teardrops’ can be toxic if ingested, so keep out of reach of curious children or pets that may otherwise try a taste.


    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!
