String of Pearls
Scientific Name: Senecio Rowleyanus
Genus: Senecio Ragworts
This trailing succulent gets its name from its resemblance to a string of pearls. This succulents size and shape make it very interesting, and the trailing feature makes it the perfect contender for your favorite hanging basket! I have some string of pearls cuttings tucked into the edges of some echeveria pots and they look awesome! The cuttings fill in around the edges and spill over the edge of the pot! It is most commonly found in all green, however variegated varieties do exist and are BEAUTIFUL! The string of pearls is a soft succulent, that can only be outsides in certain zones.
