Senecio peregrinus 'String of Dolphins'


The uniquely shaped leaves of this strongly draping succulent variety feature a gracefully curved shape with dorsal fin-like protrusions – thus earning the plant the moniker Senecio peregrinus ‘String of Dolphins!’ Relatively rare within the succulent world, this specimen can prove slightly more high maintenance than some other Senecio, but the trade off is well worth it to enjoy its marvelously charming leaves within your home or patio space!

Unlike many succulents, ‘String of Dolphins’ prefers indirect light to partial shade, avoiding the harshest afternoon sunlight whenever possible. Furthermore, it prefers slightly more frequent watering than many similar cultivars, allowing the soil to just dry through before providing another drink. As such, porous soil within a well-draining pot is a must to avoid root rot, as is ample airflow around the stems and soil surface. Hardy only to Zone 10, be sure to bring this rare beauty indoors when the threat of frost looms.

When contented, ‘String of Dolphins’ will send up small, puffball-like blooms with a rich cinnamon fragrance. If the plant begins to look leggy as its stems grow out, do not hesitate to prune the lengthiest stems back, even rerooting the resulting clippings into the soil at the base of the plant in order to achieve a rich, full look.
