String of Teardrops Trailing Plant - Small
The String of Teardrops plant official name Senecio Herrianus is a flowering plant in the daisy family Asteraceae native to south west Africa. This plant was named after British botanist Gordon Douglas Rowley who specialised in Cacti and succulents. Like most succulents, it requires very little hands-on care.
In addition to its unique foliage, string of pearls can produce tiny white flowers with bright coloured stamens.
Be sure the plant (and any fallen beads) are out of reach of children and pets: This succulent can be toxic when consumed.
