Small, garden plant seen in Los Angeles on 3/10/14.
The plant uploaded may be Senecio talinoides
Thanks for the suggested id.
The plant in my post is very close to … post from Delhi. Id suggested as Senecio talinoides by …
Hope to get it validated.
This plant is different from mine in shorter more pointed clustered leaves and numerous heads in the inflorescence. This should be Kleinia talinoides only. In mine K. ficoides leaves are more flattened, longer and less condensed and heads few in number. The two are considered fairly close species in cultivation.
Thanks for a quick validation of my post and also pointing out the differences between the two Species

Kindly help with identification of this Cultivated Succulent.
Hope to know ID
I thought of most likely Senecio barbertonicus ..BUT its flower head usually has branches and many flowers on one stalk of flower
Your plant has one flower per stalk…
please run a key and find it and share with us…clue is the daisy like flower
my guess right now is senecio scaposus
Senecio scaposus may be correct ID. … this species has often 3-5 heads at the tip of scape. I can count 2 in one, 3-4 in another.
you are right i looked again.. …thanks
From another thread:
I think, my unidentified plant is also Curio talinoides.
Thanks, … I think matches with images at http://www.ispotnature.org/node/696105
Now I am fully convinced that my plant is some cultivar of Curio talinoides. Attaching more clear photographs.
Ok. it seems to be so.
if … case is C. talinoides than the … case is not where
the leaflet is different shaped and ended and inflorescence branching is different. i agree that … case is end of tis growing cycle and ANil’s just coming into its prime, still there are enough differences. does anyone have a key for senecio and curio plants?
Thanks, …, for these marvellous pictures.
Seen a beautiful post by post by Dr. Gurcharan Singh Sir on Kleinia ficoides syn: Cacalia ficoides; Senecio ficoides.
This should be Senecio talinoides Sch.Bip.
