Senecio scaposus has long, bean-like leaves with a silvery, woolly covering. Native to south Africa, form rosset of long silver finger-like leaves that appear as if cobwebbed silver rossetes provide great accent for rock gardens.
Senecio scaposus, commonly known as Woolly Senecio, The Silver Spider, or Silver Coral, is a stemless small succulent of up to 4 inches (10 cm) long. Its leaves are fleshy, spike-shaped and covered with a powdery green white layer. This coating serves as a protecting cover for the plant to reflect sunlight and avoid overheating or sunburn; it may shed as the plant ages. Woolly Senecio produces bright yellow daisy-like flowers in the summer.
