Senecio 'Jolly Gray' (Hybrid Kleinia) - Spreading succulent from South Africa that grows to 12 to 18 inches tall with narrow 4 to 6 inch long blue gray fleshy leaves that can have branched leaf tips. It produces small rayless dull white flowers in mid-summer and forms a dense mat with leaves angled upward from the ground. Similar to Senecio mandraliscae but with finer texture. Drought tolerant but tolerates regular irrigation. Plant in full sun to light shade. Hardy to 10-15 F. A great groundcover. This plant is a John Bleck hybrid between Senecio talinoides ssp. mandraliscae and Senecio ficoides. We named it 'Jolly Gray' to correspond with another John Bleck hybrid, Aeonium 'Jolly Green'.  This description is based on our research and observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We also try to incorporate comments received from others and appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Senecio talinoides 'Jolly Gray'.
