This looks like one I had when I lived in the old cottage. It has nice yellow flowers :o)

Hywel, I knew it as Senecio, back in the day!

Sandra, I just HAD to see some plants, withdrawal symptoms setting in! The vouchers I had at Christmas have all been used now. I think getting a David Austin rose for a fiver was my best buy of the day. : o ))

Ah yes I remember now - Senecio. That's what I called it. I couldn't remember.

Thanks for reminding us of the old name, Shirley . . . if someone had told me this was Brachyglottis, I'd have said "No, it's not!" Ever confused - shakes head in dismay . .

LOL, Sheila, doesn't Brachyglottis sound horrible, like an illness! In my head it will always be Senecio. : o )

Quite right, Shirley. :))
