Botanical name: Curio rowleyanus

Curio rowleyanus, also known as string of pearls, is a hardy, evergreen, mat-forming, succulent groundcover with long creeping, trailing stems. It is a beautiful plant for hanging baskets, window boxes, or a variety of other containers, where the dense bunches of trailing stems hang gracefully over the edge. From spring to autumn, it bears masses of pretty, brush-like white flowers on and off that attract tiny, pollinating insects. The flowers are faintly cinnamon-scented. Plant in semi-shade in well-drained soil.
