Senecio Mandralis Blue Succulent is a more unique looking succulent that has long, tubular leaves of blue-gray in a bunch instead of a rosette pattern. In high heat and bright sun it might take on a purple tint. This native of South Africa is sometimes called Blue Chalksticks which refers to the 3-4 inch leaves’ coloring and shape. In the summer small, white flowers will bloom above the foliage. As with most succulents, Senecio Mandralis Blue is heat and drought tolerant and requires little water and good drainage.
Succulents tend to be drought tolerant and prefer poor soil conditions that drain very well. Some varieties can take a light freeze. Try succulents in a rock garden or in a succulent wall. Some even do well in a terrarium.
