This adorable succulent will give you beachy vibes all day long because, true to its name, its leaves resemble a pod of jumping dolphins! A hybrid of the string of pearls (Senecio rowleyanus) and candle plant (Senecio articulatus) the string of dolphins (Senecio peregrinus) is a trailing succulent in the Asteraceae family.
String of dolphins are characterized by their iconic dolphin-shaped leaves and long hanging tendrils. While they can bloom, the delicate blooms are relatively inconspicuous and these plants are grown for their interesting foliage rather than their flowers. They look great in hanging baskets and vertical gardens, or they can be trained to grow upwards on a trellis or moss pole depending on what look you are going for.
String of dolphins are most commonly grown indoors as houseplants, although they can also be grown outdoors. However, they are not frost-tolerant succulents and require warm weather year-round in order to grow well.
