Senecio fulgens, Kleinia fulgens

Orange thistle, Coral senecio
Family: Asteraceae
Origin: KwaZulu-Natal, Mozambique and Zimbabwe
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunDry conditionsOrnamental foliageYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Beautiful orange flowered succulent that is ideal for hot, dry spots in the garden. The genus is named after the German zoologist, Dr Klein (1685-1759). The species name, fulgens, means shining and refers to the vibrant color of the flowers. The plant grows to a height of about 7" and is ideal for planting in rockeries or other dry, sunny spots, as the scarlet flower heads add a splash of color in mid-winter. The plant can be propagated easily from seed, stem cuttings and leaf cuttings. Sow fresh seed in seedtrays containing a very well-drained potting mixture such as 1/2 fine milled pine bark and 1/2 sharp sand. Cover the seed lightly and water carefully. Propagation from stem cuttings is using a mature stem that can be rooted as is. The pieces should be left to dry for 2 to 3 days before planting. The cuttings are then placed in a container of sharp river sand and kept in an airy, sunny position. Care must be taken not to over-water the cuttings-they are best kept on the dry side. Repot when sufficient roots have formed. Propagation by leaf cuttings: allow leaves to dry for 2 to 3 days and plant in a container of sharp river sand. It is best to insert the leaf at an angle with about 1/3 in the rooting medium. Treat as for cuttings. It should take 6 to 8 weeks for a new plant to appear.
