Planting tip
Soak the rootball of your plant in a bucket of water to wet thoroughly prior to planting. For extra goodness, add a bit of liquid fertiliser.
Senecio rufiglandulosus
Height: 0.5m;  Spread: 0.5m
Herb
A large light green leaved perennial that grows along the coast. Not too common in the Auckland region anymore. Produces yellow flowers. Rather attractive.

This Senecio was flowering prolifically in the Pureora region at the end of November. As it is uncommon now in the Auckland region, seeing it in the distance, we initially dismissed it as ragwort! Shame!
