String of Dolphins (Senecio Peregrinus) Fun Facts
- Senecio Peregrinus is also known as dolphin necklace, flying dolphins, string of dolphins, dolphin plant, or Senecio Hippogriff.
- The beautiful dolphin shape is due to the cross-pollination of two plant variants, the Senecio Roweleyanus (string of pearls) and Senecio Articulates (hot dog or candle plant).
- Because the dolphin succulent is a cross variety, it’s not a very common plant and can be difficult to find.
- They grow cinnamon-scented white blossoms in the fall.
- Native to Southwest Africa
- Toxic to dogs and cats and can be mildly toxic to humans.
- It was first documented by August Grisebach in 1879 as Senecio peregrinus, using the Latin word “dolphin” for its appearance.
