I don’t see this succulent for sale frequently, or in gardens very often for that matter. Got mine at the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show a couple years back, which coincidentally is opening next week, March 23-27, 2011. If I find it again, I might bring home another Senecio crassimus this year. Judging by the bruising and damage to its leaves, the pampered life of a container might be more suitable to this light shade-tolerant succulent. I’ll miss those purply stems and leaves alongside the path of the gravel garden rising up out of a carpet of Sedum rupestre ‘Angelina,’ but if I pot up the senecio with a small piece of ‘Angelina’ today to pair up these two again in a container, I should get a full chartreuse carpet in the pot, oh, in about a week. Dustin Gimbel has shared some S. rupestre ‘Lemon Coral’ with me, which he finds vastly superior to ‘Angelina,’ so I’ll be having a comparative growathon between the two this spring.
