Description How to Grow Delivery

Closely related to Senecio, with its ‘String of Pearls’ and ‘String of Dolphins’, String of Rubies or Othonna capensis is a charming trailing succulent whose fleshy leaves uniquely turn ruby red when grown in full sun. The pointed, bean-shaped leaves are strung along striking pinkish purple stems, which tumble gently over the sides of the pot. Hailing from South Africa, this easy-to-grow succulent thrives in a sunny spot and produces yellow flowers for most of the year if it is happy. Height: 10cm (4in). Spread: 30cm (12in).
