The Senecio radicans "String of Bananas" is a creeping, perennial succulent vine native to the drier parts of southwest Africa. In it's natural environment, its stems trail on the ground, putting down roots where they touch, however they are most likely seen cascading out of a hanging pot inside homes. The long vines are lined with banana-shaped leaves, and clusters of tiny white flowers that smell like cinnamon usually bloom between October and December.
