A couple of Curios

Walker, Colin C. (2016). A couple of Curios. Northants News, 27(1) pp. 5–7.


The genus Curio was proposed 20 years ago as a split from the large genus Senecio. It is only now being adopted with with the application of modern molecular techniques based on DNA studies. Curio is a small genus consisting of around 20 species that are all low-growing, creeping or sprawling succulents with daisy-like flowers and hence are members of the large family the Asteraceae.

This article features two species: Curio articulatus and C. rowleyanus, both of which have variegated cultivars; both normal and variegated forms are illustrated.
