Spear Head Plant Description
senecio “Spear Head” speaks up to its nickname, a unique succulent plant native to South Africa. A woody stem branching vertically with thick blue-green foliage. The leaves can grow to be 1 inch long and have V-shaped tips. A beautiful addition to your succulent collection. Perfect to plant in hanging baskets or tall planters.
