Silver Ragwort (Senecio, Dusty Miller)

 Do not Feed
  • Common Name: Silver Ragwort (Senecio, Dusty Miller)
  • Latin Name: Senecio cineraria; Jacobaea maritima
  • Family Name: Asteraceae/Compositae

Although this plant is cultivated for the garden, it is closely related to the Ragwort and contains pyrrolizidine, an alkaloid which is potentially damaging to the liver. 

Do not plant in or near the tortoise enclosure, and do not feed. 

Flowers are mainly yellow, but there are varieties with white flowers.
