Senecio Rowleyanus

I am currently obsessed with this plant also known as “string of pearls”. It is from the Succulent family which are water retaining plants that adapt to arid climates. They store the water in their leaves which gives them a swollen appearance.

This particular one is just beautiful – it looks like hundreds of peas strung together or a pearl waterfall! I can’t imagine anything more soothing to look at. When you look closer at all the different greens and varying sizes they are mesmerizing.
