Senecio 'Silvery Velvet'
Common Name: Senecio Family: Asteraceae (The Aster Family)

If you loved 'Angel Wings' then you'll love 'Silvery Velvet' with similar large, silver, fuzzy leaves but in this case with nice leaf ribs and rippled, lobed edges for a greater textural and structural effect. These large-leaved Senecio have all the drama of a succulent while begging you to caress their soft, fuzzy leaves like it was your new pet. Easy to grow in the garden or containers and tolerant of drought and heat. Forms mounds up to 16 inches high and wide.
