Senecio rowleyanus - 'string of pearls'
Native to Southwestern Africa, you’ve probably seen this stunning hanging plant resting in many a shop and home over the last few years. It’s a delightful little succulent built up of amazing trailing oval shaped beads collecting together to create a semi-tangled plant structure that looks unlike any other on the market. It’s an incredible feat of nature, and you can find yourself staring at it thinking ‘how do you even work’?
String of Pearls plants are relatively fast growing so give them room when first placing them in an area, so they can trail easily. Perfect for hanging baskets or pouring from shelves. Ceiling or wall, Senecio rowleyanus transforms a space, with its cascading leaves tumbling down from the floating pot or hanging over a bookshelf to create a bit of unruliness in your life. For our money, nothing causes a sense of organised chaos like a hanging plant, with its unruly look the perfect addition to adding that impression of ‘wild’ to your indoor set-up.
