Buy Senecio Angel Wings ('Senaw') (PBR) senecio: Large, silvery white leaves with a soft, downy texture.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, freely draining soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    A striking new foliage plant that has already started to pull in the awards. Its large, silvery white leaves have a soft, downy texture, which makes it ideal for a sensory garden, but it will also make an eye-catching feature for a border or pot where it will thrive in a hot, sunny spot. It quickly forms a good-sized clump and will become tolerant of drought once established. It also tolerates salt-laden winds, so will also flourish in a coastal setting.

  • Garden care: Avoid excessive winter wet and move to a more sheltered spot when temperatures dip below -8 to -10C.

What's the best way to give this plant frost protection?

happygardener

Hello, If it is growing in a pot, then I would move the pot to a sheltered spot, but if it is in the border, you could cover it with frost fleece (see link below), and perhaps even more importantly, avoid excessive winter wet. https://www.crocus.co.uk/product/_/fleece-cold-protection/classid.2000031540/

Would this grow well in a container? It would mean I could move it in Winter to somewhere more sheltered. Liz,

Liz the Fizz

Yes, these tend to do really well in pots - provided they are kept well fed and watered.

Helen

Hi, Is it OK to plant out in containers in early March?

Cole

It really depends on where you live. If you live in a colder part of the country, or if your soil is waterlogged for any length of time in spring, then it would be better to plant this in late spring.

Helen

Senecio angel wings. The foliage has become blackened with lines and a spreading wetness. The top leaves are fine . What can I do to save the plant?

Trotonuk

Hello It is hard to be sure but if the 'lines' are like trails across the leaf it could be that slugs or snails are reaching the leaves, and they are damaging the downy texture on the surface. If it is these pests then try and protect the plant from them.

I bought this plant in May 2018 it is growing well and strong I noticed the other day I have lines on the leaves that look wet and then the leaf splits could anyone advise me on this please

Jojo

I'm afraid it's difficult to diagnose without a photo, so perhaps you can send us one (along with your order reference number) to [email protected] and we can have a look.

Helen

Can I split this plant like I do Hostas ? Do you take off lower leaves, if so when ?

Hopeful

Unfortunately as this plant is covered by Plant Breeders Rights (PBR), it is illegal to propagate it, but if the older, lower leaves start to look tatty, you can certainly pick these off to tidy the plant up.

Helen

Hi Do I need to cut this back at all in the winter? Many thanks Sara

Sara

Hello, No, but you may want to remove some of the older or damaged leaves in early spring each year.

Helen

Hello, I wonder whether this is prone to slug and snail damage, as with hostas?

lollipoppit

Hello, No, I have not heard that this is particularly prone to attack by slugs and snails.
