Senecio cephalophorus ornamental herb photographed from Delhi.

Never seen, very beautiful pics, thanks for sharing Sir..

Taking it as Senecio fulgens as per discussions in another thread.

I think yes, better include as Kleinia fulgens, the accepted name now.

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
