Senecio vitalis

Just planted, May 2018
Common name narrow-leaf chalk sticks
Family asteraceae

Picked this up, unlabeled, at a local nursery, and figured out later it is S. vitalis. It was tiny when it started out in the back of our rock garden, but has grown nicely since then, not set back at all in the mild winters we've had. Judging by online photos, the blue-leaved form (closer in appearance to our S. mandraliscae) is more commonly grown, but I like the yellowish-green hue of our plant.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
