Seen this plant at several botanical gardens but it is rarely labeled. Took me some time to figure it out. Pretty large for a succulent Senecio and makes and attractive silver-blue-green shrub. Flowers are 'typical' Senecio flowers in fall. Leaf morphology seems to vary a bit from smooth-edged to a bit scalloped.
