SKU: Senecio ficoides Category: Tags: ,


An impressive evergreen succulent native to South Africa, this is the largest of the grey leaf Senecios and is able to grown to a height and width of about half a metre. With an upright shape, it has long, stout stems that arch upwards and also snake along the ground, featuring narrow blue-green leaves that are flat on the top and rounded below, each ending in a sharp-looking but soft tip. Commonly called Flat-leaved Senecio, Silver Senecio, Big Blue chalk sticks or Giant Chalk Stick, it is a valuable landscaping succulent which forms a dense, rippling mat. Its flowers are spongy, creamish yellow and heavily scented.

This plant is easy care making it the perfect container or garden plant. It needs little water (moderate to sparing depending on the season) and can be planted in full sun to light shade in a well-draining soil. Will do best in a position with indirect light and low humidity.

Due to quarantine laws Ezy Care Succulents can only post to QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and ACT. We are currently seeking approval to post to WA, TAS and NT, so please join our facebook group to receive updates of when we can ship to you.


All plants are removed from their pots and all soil cleaned away as this is the safest and cleanest way of shipping. Succulents are extremely hardy, and this will not harm your plants but will just appear "dry and thirsty". Easy instructions on how to repot and care for your succulents are included with every order.

By preparing your plants with bare roots helps comply with quarantine regulations and also minimises shipping costs to our customers, making Ezy Care Succulents a very cost-effective way of purchasing your plants.

All orders are packaged with environmentally friendly recycled paper to ensure safe freight and reduce damage to the plant.


Only the healthiest, top quality plants are selected from the Ezy Care Succulents nursery for your order. The size, colour, and shape of your shipment may vary according to the season, or when shipping to colder areas. All succulents are slightly dried prior to packaging and may look different to the photo. Preparation instructions are included in every order which are specific to the plants that you have ordered, and usually only take a few days to recover.

Even though many of our succulents are known for their agricultural and medicinal uses, all the plants at the Ezy Care Succulents nursery are propagated for ornamental purposes only. Please ensure that you have conducted your own thorough research if you intend on consuming these plants, as we recommend against human consumption.
