succulent vine

Senecio rowleyanus or Curio rowleyanus, receives its common name from specialized leaves which are the size and shape of small peas (about ​14 inch diameter). Its trailing stems can grow 2–4 feet (60–90 cm). There is a small tip on at the distal point of each leaf and a thin band of dark green tissue on the side known as a “window”. It blooms during the summer and, like all asterids, it has a compound flower. The trumpet shaped flower forms clusters (about ​12 inch diameter) of small white flowers with colorful stamens. The flower will last about a month and is said to smell like cinnamon and other spices. Native to the drier parts of southwest Africa. In its natural environment its stems trail on the ground, rooting where they touch and forming dense mats. It often avoids direct sunlight by growing in the shade of other plants and rocks.
