Kleinia mandraliscae (previously known as Senecio mandraliscae) is a spreading succulent from South Africa. It grows to 300mm-450mm tall with 75mm-100mm long blue-gray leaves that look a bit like french fries and forms a dense mat with leaves angled upward from the ground. In summer, it produces fragrant small white flowers.
