The blue plant on the hill behind the fountain is Senecio mandraliscae. The color almost matches the pot! It is a great easy care succulent for ground-cover and also good in pots.

The client had the pot already. We just made it into a fountain with the hidden reservoir basin and pump under the stones.

Pat, is the Senecio irrigated? What special soil amendments did you use for it's installation? I have found it to look good for about a year and then gets really sparse.

The Senecio is irrigated about 1x a week. It looks best and lasts a long time if you routinely cut it back. It grows fast and tends to build up on itself so we cut the long growth off . It will send up new shoots quickly. If there is a bare or bad patch you can just use the cuttings to fill in. I also like to remove the flowers as they look messy.
