String of Hearts is a trailing succulent-like plant native to South Africa. The delicate heart-shaped foliage and slender vines can reach up to 12' long in its natural environment, and has earned this plant Rosary Vine and Sweetheart Vine nicknames.
This unusual, hardy vining succulent produces pretty, variegated, heart-shaped leaves on tough, wire-like stems. The plant trails nicely and makes an unusual hanging plant. The vines can grow to be two or three feet long.The nearly odorless Chinese lantern flowers are small and a peculiar shade of brownish pink. Some people say these blooms looked like little vases with a rounded base and long, narrow top.
