A small succulent that hugs the ground branching from the base and rooting along the stems. The prostrate stems hold short powdery blue-green finger-like fleshy leaves. Small white flowers bloom in summer. Plant in full sun in well drained soil. Requires little water. Hardy to around 20° F. This plant is similar to Senecio mandraliscae but smaller and far less vigorous.
