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'.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of this plant in our nursery crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We also will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Senecio talinoides 'Jolly Gray'.
