About Variegated wax ivy

Variegated wax ivy (Senecio macroglossus ‘Variegatus’) is a delightful trailing plant with succulent stems and waxy, ivy-like leaves. Also known as variegated senecio, it is related to the string of pearls plant (Senecio rowleyanus). It is native to South Africa where it grows wild on the forest floor.
Variegated wax ivy may surprise you with pale yellow, daisy-like flowers, and, in bright sunlight, the stems and leaf edges take on a pink or purplish tint. You can plant in a hanging basket where the plump stems can cascade over the rim of the container.  Senecio wax ivy is a sturdy, low-maintenance and is most often grown as an indoor plant.
