Like Blue Chalksticks, on steroids. Senecio Skyscraper is a strong, upright grower, reaching 2-3’ in one growing season. No staking or support necessary. Fabulous new structural component for succulent gardens. Can be used as a house plant.
Hardy from USDA Zones 10-11. However, there is a simple solution for gardeners in Zones 8 and below: Plant the Skyscraper® Senecio in a pot and bring it indoors for the winter. Place it in a sunny window and return it outside once the threat of frost passes in the spring.
Requires Full Sun to Partial Shade for best results.
Water 1-2 times per week during the first growing season if planted in the ground. However, water 2-3 times per week if planted in a container.
Senecio plants don't need much fertilizer to thrive. However, apply a liquid houseplant fertilizer in spring to ensure that it has all of the nutrients it needs.
Plant your Senecio ~2 feet apart for a seamless planting. Space them 4+ feet apart for gaps between clumps.
