Bead Plant (Senecio rowleyanus)

Here’s an easy-to-grow succulent with round, fleshy leaves from which its common names, Bead Plant or String of Pearls, are derived. Unique in its form, yet tolerant of extremes in dryness, the draping basket of green beads lights up any room with greenery and plant life. When it blooms, the Bead Plant has small white flowers that smell like cinnamon. This South African native is nearly indestructible when grown in full-to-partial sun.

Hardy to Zone 10 and higher for outdoors.

Full or partial sun, grows to 1-2" in container, minimum temperature indoors 35°.
