I have this but I've lost it's name. I am sure it is a type of Kleinia. As it grows it will have leaves at the tips of the stems and tufty flowers. Mine has died back a lot and is barely alive now. I have no photo of it.

It's Kleinia articulata. It grows into a lovely plant :o)
It has nice stems

Almost agree with Hywel, because Kleinia is a synonym of Senecio...:) Think it's Senecio kleiniiformis.

It seems to be the same plant. I don't know why it has 2 diferent names.

The second name Kleinia kleiniiformis...
Hywel, find "Binomial nomenclature" wiki in Google...:) You'll have an answer.

So many names for the same plant.

Hywel and Uma, many thanks, it is a bit of a mouthful, it does sound nice though, I expect it is tender Hywel did you bring it inside?

No I left it out in the cold frame and I think it has died. I have it in the house now so we'll see if it revives.

Oh good luck, I bet it is really cold where you are now.

There's a lot of snow in my garden because the sun doesn't reach it until later in Feb.

Yes,I'm sure you're right Dotty, I'm sure it's a Senecio Kleiniiformis, also know as the Spear Head as the common name :-)
