Rosettes of thick rubbery leaves with a bluish, waxy coating. Chubby, nodding buds straighten up and bloom in showy pompoms of tiny, starry orange trumpets.
"Senecio" comes from the Latin for "old" or "old man." This plant's genus name may be more correctly Kleinia, but Senecio is more widely accepted. We believe that our Orange Flame is Senecio galpinii. It is similar to the red blooming Senecio fulgens and the yellow blooming Senecio cephalophorus.
Over-winter indoors. Native to South Africa.
