Senecio articulatus, Schz. Bip. (Kleinia articulata, Haw.). Candle Plant. Plant branching, glabrous and fleshy, 1-2 ft. high, the branches swollen at intervals: lvs. flat and fleshy, petiolate, laciniate or runcinate, with acuminate lobes: heads discoid and all the florets perfect, white, in small corymbs on naked peduncles: achenes downy. S. Afr.—Perhaps the commonest kleinia in cult., being grown with coolhouse succulents. S. (Kleinia) Anteuphorbium, Schz. Bip., is sometimes seen in collections, although it is not known to be in the American trade. It is a glabrous shrub 3-4 ft. high, with fleshy sts. constricted at the joints, small, erect, fleshy, entire lvs. that are decurrent on the st., and solitary cylindric yellow-fld. heads (with rose tinge) an inch long. B. M. 6099. According to J. D. Hooker, this plant "is one of the oldest Cape plants in cult. having, according to Dodonaeus, been brought to Eu. in 1570, and cult. in England in Gerard's garden in 1596. The name Anteuphorbium was given because of its being a reputed antidote against the acrid poison of the Cape Euphorbium." The names Kleinia spinulosa, K. pendula, and K. suspensa have appeared in the American trade, but they are unidentifiable. CH
