Saw this plant in Ramoji Film city in their Cacti garden.
Can this plant be Crassocephalum crepidioides [Synonyms: Gynura crepidioides] from Asteraceae commonly known as “thick head” or ” fire weed”??
I am sure that this is not Crassocephalum crepedioides which is characterised by its nodding (and mango-smelling) heads. pl see the links
currently have no clue about the id but.
Me too thinks this is not Crassocephalum crepidioides – the heads look different in shape. However, no clue to its true identity yet.
I tend to agree with … and … I also had some initial doubt, but thought perhaps a stunted form of that plant. Let us hope the true identity emerges soon.
I hope it is Senecio fulgens
Indeed! It should be Kleinia fulgens / Senecio fulgens as … says! Good identification!
Is it not the same as Senecio cephalophorus posted by … in another thread or is it Senecio fulgens as already identified by … plant is also Senecio cephalophorus ?
If both are same it will be advisable to go by Plantzafrica.
Pl. see few links
Taking both as Senecio fulgens for the time being.
