Kindly help with identification of this Cultivated Succulent.

can you enlarge the pic in parts and submit not only the top, middle with the leaves and bottom that may or may not have flowers
what is that pink stuff that I can not make out in this one picture at this magnification…
I think I know what this is but I need to make sure

I have only one photograph clicked in 2012. I will try to upload original full resolution photograph.

The photograph is not clear. Please send the closeup of the foliage.

Without flower hard to tell…. some Senecio, like Senecio jacobsenii?

Kindly find attached full resolution photograph of the same plant. I had only two photographs clicked in Flower/ Plant Exhibition of Summer Festival June 2012 in Shimla.

Ok i still cant really make out the flower if its that.. the dark pink thing at the bottom.
the leaves and their cascading etc … are seen

its a plant called trailing jade

though called jade its not a crassula
Its a Senecio

an asteraceae family

called Senecio jacobsenii

or synonym: Kleinia petraea

so far I think you had another senecios if i remember correctly from the Simla succulent show…


save them for the asteraceae family when it comes around

Thank you, Di. I will save them for Asteraceae.

Looks closer to Senecio jacobsonii as also suggested by …

Look up Senecio jacobsenii ‘Weeping Jade’
