|String of Dolphins -- The hottest plant|
One of the ‘hottest’ plants is String of Dolphins – Senecio peregrinus. Where did this come from? Why had we not known about this novelty plant before?
The internet will tell you everything. But what to believe?
Perhaps, it is natural occurring species found in nature as Senecio peregrinus --- common name: String of Dolphins.
A counter argument is that it is a hybrid---- either natural occurring or man-made. We have had hundreds of flowers go to seed, but have not seen any seedlings sprout, implying it may be sterile. This is a common phenomenon of F1 hybrids of two species --- a sterile hybrid.
You are welcome to comment to give an accurate picture of String of Dolphins.
This novel plant is going to become a standard. It would be nice to know its history.
