The first thing to know about this green, pink and cream variegated plant is that it’s actually a daisy, not an ivy, with pale yellow daisy-like flowers in summer. It is a semi-succulent, slender twining climber and can be trained into a striking columnar plant around a support, or left to trail in a hanging basket. This variegated form received a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit in 2002.
It comes from the eastern part of Southern Africa on the margins of forests and thickets which tells us that it prefers bright light and can cope with drier conditions than are found within a forest.
When grown as an indoor plant, the stems may reach several meters in length. It is easy to clip and keep in whatever shape is desired, whether growing up a totem or cascading from a hanging pot.
Keep the plant in bright indirect light for the best pink colour of the leaves. Grow it in well-draining potting mix and allow the mix to dry down considerably before giving a thorough watering again. Keep the plant drier in winter. Fertilise while it is in active growth. It is not frost-hardy so if you grow it on a deck or balcony protect it from frost.
We recommend using our Plant Food available here.
Note! This plant might cause an allergic reaction in pets causing skin, eye or mouth irritation so keep it out of reach of your furry friends! It is only toxic to dogs, cats and humans when consumed in large amounts over a long period. Pyrrolizidine alkaloid poisoning is a long-term poisoning that results in liver failure. The bad taste means most animals will not eat much unless there is no alternative.
Ivy's tend to be fairy rapid growers, crawling along the ground, often smothering all that is in their path, sending out new runners and also climbing trees. They therefore must always be treated with caution. The Senecio Macroglossus although not as vigorous as the typical English Ivy can still be an environmental weed in warm areas of the country so be mindful of how you dispose of cuttings.

You can choose Regular post or Express. Express Post is $34.99.We highly recommend Express to minimise travel time for your order.

Delivery Lead time-
Please note that the delivery timeline is an estimate only, and we cannot guarantee delivery on or before a specific date. However, in many cases, orders are delivered earlier than estimated. Please allow extra time for your deliveries to arrive during busy periods.
What if I’m not home?
Please note we will attempt 1 delivery to your location. If you’re not home, our driver will find a safe spot to leave your order. If unsuccessful and it’s not safe to leave, you will be required to collect your order from our storage facility. You’ll get a notification about your missed delivery, so you can pick your item up in person. Please email our team so we can confirm a date and time for you to pick it up.
– Delivery to a Parcel collection point is not possible.
– Please ensure the address you have nominated can accept deliveries on the weekend and during the week including holidays. We are not able to facilitate only weekend and only weekday deliveries.
– We are also not able to update with ETA on timings other than the above delivery window, as this does become quite hard for us to manage expectations.
– Changes to delivery addresses are not possible once the order is placed.
We will do our best when packing but please allow for some leaf damage during transportation due to packaging or climate change. If your plant looks like it has wilted during transit, we recommend giving it some water right away – this should help it to recover and settle in or reach out to our horticulturalists on Facebook for more help.
