Senecio candicans 'Angel Wings'
Common Name: Senecio Family: Asteraceae (The Aster Family)

Senecio candicans 'Angel Wings' is an arrestingly beautiful plant with large, silver-white, gently ruffled, velvety leaves with toothed edges forming dramatic mounds of eye-catching foliage. It has all the drama of a succulent while begging you to caress its soft, fuzzy leaves like it was your new pet. Easy to grow in the garden or containers, some reports are also suggesting it can be brought indoors as a houseplant in regions where it isn't hardy. Forms mounds up to 16 inches high and wide. Produces clusters of bright yellow, button-like flowers.
