Senico (I think) about to bloom for 1st time

paul_in_long_beach(Z 10 Sunset 24)October 1, 2005

I've had this for a few years, but this is the first time I'll get to see a bloom. A type of senico, I think.

Here's the plant

And here's the bud

Ity does look like a Senecio, you'll know for sure when the flower opens as it will be kind of like a peeled back daisy, as its in that family(Asteraceae)

I believe they may be smelly too!

After a spelling lesson from Larry, I was able to do a Google search. I'm calling it Senecio anteuphorbium.

i would be more inclined to call it that.

No scent. I'm sticking with Senecio anteuphorbium, as these sites seem to confirm:
