The plant in the images is NOT Senecio tamoides. It is Senecio angulatus.

A great, luscious plant. Very underrated and overlooked. You can barely find it. More common in the Levant and Mediterranean islands than in the US, UK, Canada and Australia (anglophones). It's not a very "western" plant, although it is native to South Africa.

Again, this is Senecio angulatus (Cape ivy). I hope you correct the title. :)
