Buy Senecio candidans 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 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.

I was given mine as a gift and it's lost all its furyness what have I done wrong


CAN I keep this plant indoors for winter


I would advise against keeping this as an indoor plant for any length of time as the low light and central eating will have an adverse effect. A better option would be to keep it outside, but in a sheltered position.


senecio angel wings plant. bright green patches are appearing on some of the leaves and then holes appear where green was. What can I do to prevent this?.


I suspect that the plant is being eaten by slugs and snails, so do try to pick these off, or use one of the preventatives/controls on the following link to help keep your plant happy and healthy.


Is it normal for angel wing plant to have a flower and how can I cut it back to make it a bit smaller as it has spread a lot in a small bed


These plants are primarily grown for their foliage, however it is not unusual for them to produces flattened sprays of yellow daisy-like flowers in summer. As for puruning, they do not require any, however if it has outgrown its allotted space then you can cut them back


My Senecio has recently started to look extremely droopy - it is in a pot, in full sun and prior to the past couple of weeks, been extremely healthy. I checked this morning and the soil is still damp, so it has not dried out. Given we have had torrential rains over the past few days, and I live in an unfortunate "wind tunnel", might the wind/excessive rain have caused this? And what can I do urgently to redress the situation please?


Hello, The most likely cause of this is too much water, so do try to let the compost dry out before you water it again, and (even more importantly) make sure all the excess water can drain away freely from the bottom of the pot.


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


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.


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

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


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


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.


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?


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


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 and we can have a look.
