Selenicereus setaceus are simular to Hylocereus-(Dragon Fruit).

Sempervivum sp., Houseleeks, Hen and Chicks

Sempervivum sp.

Houseleeks, Hen and Chicks
Family: Crassulaceae
Origin: Mediterranean
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunModerate waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Sempervivums are available in many forms and colors, green through browns, yellow, orange, pink and red although they need to be grown in full sun to fully exhibit the different colors. Out of full sun many cultivars tend to end up as a similar green color. Leaves may be glossy or matt, in some cases with a waxy bloom or with downy hairs.

Sempervivums reproduce vegetatively by offsetting around the base of the rosette, often forming a dense cushion. Each offset will develop roots of its own and become independent of the parent plant as the connecting stolon withers. Some Sempervivums produce offsets on the end of long stolons and these root down at a distance from the parent plant, rather than producing a dense clump.

Senecio cineraria, Cineraria maritima, Jacobaea maritima, Dusty Miller, Silver Ragwort

Senecio cineraria, Cineraria maritima, Jacobaea maritima

Dusty Miller, Silver Ragwort
Family: Asteraceae
Origin: Central America
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterOrnamental foliageYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

This Dusty Miller does best in well drained, even sandy soils with regular watering. It is fairly drought tolerant once established, but should be watered during prolonged dry periods. New plantings may require daily watering, especially in sandy soils, until the roots (which can cover a lot of area) are well developed. Senecio cineraria gets a rust disease and dies during prolonged hot, wet periods.

Senecio fulgens, Kleinia fulgens, Orange thistle, Coral senecio

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.
