Plant Highlights

Shrubby senecio is a much-branched, half woody plant. The narrow, green branches create a rush-like effect to 2 ft. high. The foliage is whitish, and the numerous yellow, radiate flowers top the leafy stems. This plant is commonly found in dry washes in desert areas. Butterflies flock to the flowers which flower over a long period.
